Bookshelf | Waiting to Exhale by Terry McMillan (1992) | That’s what friends are for…

In this entertaining story, four 30-something African-American women find support in female friendships while enduring the ups and (mostly) downs of their romantic relationships.

What I love most about Terry McMillan’s writing is her realism. She puts her characters in true-to-life situations, and they struggle the same way we do in real life. When this novel came out in 1992, it caused a publishing sensation, because its depiction of modern, dynamic, African-American women drew readers of all colors to the bookstores to grab a copy.
