Stated First Edition. Professional service from a Main Street bookstore. ; 1.2 x 8.5 x 5.5 Inches; 256 pages; Nancy Bachrach is living in Paris, selling deodorant to the French, when a freak accident kills her father aboard his cabin cruiser, the aptly dubbed Mr. Fix It, in her incongruously named hometown of Providence. Her mother, Lola, the self-proclaimed "center of the universe," whose medical history reads like the chapter headings of a psychiatric manual, lies in a coma "on death’s waiting list." Nancy rushes home and sits by her mother’s ventilator—thinking about Sunny von Bülow and eyeing the plug. Thus begins a family reunion with her brother, Ben (a piano prodigy and eventual surgeon who was born with three thumbs), and sister, Helen (the wild child, now an "abnormal psychologist"). This is a dark, hilarious tale of genius, madness, ineptitude, collateral damage, and hope—with an ending that’s improbable, as only the truth can be. Aching and tender, unflinching and wry, The Center of the Universe is a multi generational mother-daughter story—a splendid, funny, lyrical book about family, truth, memory, and the resilience of love.

KNOPF], Family & Relationships|Family Relationships, Biography & Autobiography|General, Family & Relationships|Parent & Adult Child, Biography & Autobiography|Personal Memoirs, Used.

As she eyes her mother's imminent demise, a reunion of sorts takes place with her brother Ben and sister Helen, both no strangers to the stranger side of human existence.
