The Middle Place Book Excerpt:

"The Middle Place is about calling home. Instinctively. Even when all the paperwork -- a marriage license, a notarized deed, two birth certificates, and seven years of tax returns -- clearly indicates you're an adult, but all the same, there you are, clutching the phone and thanking God that you're still somebody's daughter." For Kelly Corrigan, family is everything. At thirty-six, she had a marriage that worked, a couple of funny, active kids, and a weekly newspaper column. But even as a thriving adult, Kelly still saw herself as George Corrigan's daughter. A garrulous Irish-American charmer from Baltimore, George was the center of the ebullient, raucous Corrigan clan. He greeted every day by opening his bedroom window and shouting, "Hello, World!" Suffice it to say, Kelly's was a colorful childhood, just the sort a girl could get attached to. Kelly lives deep within what she calls the Middle Place -- "that sliver of time when parenthood and childhood overlap" -- comfortably wedged between her adult duties and her parents' care. But she's abruptly shoved into a coming-of-age when she finds a lump in her breast -- and gets the diagnosis no one wants to hear. And so Kelly's journey to full-blown adulthood begins. When George, too, learns he has late-stage cancer, it is Kelly's turn to take care of the man who had always taken care of her -- and show us a woman as she finally takes the leap and grows up. Kelly Corrigan is a natural-born storyteller, a gift you quickly recognize as her father's legacy, and her stories are rich with everyday details. She captures the beat of an ordinary life and the tender, sometimes fractious moments that bind families together. Rueful and honest, Kelly is the prized friend who will tell you her darkest, lowest, screwiest thoughts, and then later, dance on the coffee table at your party. Funny, yet heart-wrenching, The Middle Place is about being a parent and a child at the same time. It is about the special double-vision you get when you are standing with one foot in each place. It is about the family you make and the family you came from -- and locating, navigating, and finally celebrating the place where they meet. It is about reaching for life with both hands -- and finding it.

The Middle Place Book Excerpt:

This funny, conversational and often very moving debut deals with the Big Questions while keeping tight focus on one life. A seriously impressive first novel, full of truth, heart and hope. – Joseph O’Connor A tour de force - a captivating debut novel, packed with punch, plot and pace - Muriel Bolger It is shockingly readable — the reader is dragged in and pulled along. It's naturalistic, honest, funny, and sad. I wasn't expecting that. Really quite wonderful. - Derek Landy A magnificent, heartfelt tale of love, family, loss and revenge, brimming with wit and wisdom both. -Anthony Glavin One minute Chris had been having a smoke, talking to his wife, and the next minute he was dead, killed with one punch. There’s not a lot about being dead that he likes. He’s stuck in this middle place with the ability to delve into the individual lives he cares about – to know what they are feeling and thinking. He is beginning to realise that in life he wasn't such a great guy. In death, he can’t say goodbye to his wife, toddler son and friends. He is determined to figure out how to haunt the person who killed him. Chris wants to rise again, to live again. He wants to feel his wife again, feel the air in his lungs, feel the sea again but something won’t let him go.

Summary of Kelly Corrigan s The Middle Place Book Excerpt:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I aspire to be the self-actualized person who no longer needs or even wants her birthday to be noticed. I try to not plan something for my birthday, but this year, I want to celebrate mine. I want to meet up with some friends in San Francisco for lunch. #2 I find a lump in my breast, and I tell my husband about it. He tells me that it’s probably a cyst, and that I have no breast cancer in my family, which is good. I get a mammogram the next day, and it turns out to be a cyst. #3 I lay my body across my bed to muffle the earsplitting sound of the alarm. I read a long article from a ten-year-old National Geographic about Hurricane Andrew in Florida. On the cover, there is a dirty, sticky, sunburned Marine holding a newly homeless toddler. #4 I grew up on Wooded Lane, just a mile from Villanova University, in the suburbs of Philadelphia. My brothers shared a bedroom, but I had my own, a pink gingham wonderland behind a hollow door from Sears that was covered with Wacky Packages stickers.

The Oxford Handbook of Comparative Cognition Book Excerpt:

In the past decade, the field of comparative cognition has grown and thrived. No less rigorous than purely behavioristic investigations, examinations of animal intelligence are useful for scientists and psychologists alike in their quest to understand the nature and mechanisms of intelligence. Extensive field research of various species has yielded exciting new areas of research, integrating findings from psychology, behavioral ecology, and ethology in a unique and wide-ranging synthesis of theory and research on animal cognition. The Oxford Handbook of Comparative Cognition contains sections on perception and illusion, attention and search, memory processes, spatial cognition, conceptualization and categorization, problem solving and behavioral flexibility, and social cognition processes including findings in primate tool usage, pattern learning, and counting. The authors have incorporated findings and theoretical approaches that reflect the current state of the field. This comprehensive volume will be a must-read for students and scientists who want to know about the state of the art of the modern science of comparative cognition.
