Summary: At a time when such things were rare, Elinor Fuchs's mother, Lil, escaped a miserable marriage, reclaimed her maiden name, left young Elinor to be raised by grandparents, and launched a career that sprung her from the Midwest to travel the world selling automotive parts and military gear. With her stunning looks and drive for success, Lil was less a mother to love than a figure to admire-and someone from whom, once in college, Elinor determined to keep her distance.

Making an Exit is the moving account of what happens afterward, following Lil's diagnosis with Alzheimer's. As the disease progresses, both women are transformed: Elinor, with growing compassion, becomes her mother's mother; Lil, filled with new warmth, regularly uses the word "love," connecting with her daughter as never before through the poetry of her disintegrating language.

"The last ten years," writes Fuchs, "they were our best." ...show less
