Emily Giffin Interview Where We Belong
Interview With Emily Giffin on Where We Belong
Marian Caldwell is a thirty-six year old television producer, living her dream in New York City. With a fulfilling career and satisfying relationship, she has convinced everyone, including herself, that her life is just as she wants it to be. But one night, Marian answers a knock on the door. For the precocious and determined Kirby, the encounter will spur a process of discovery that ushers her across the threshold of adulthood, forcing her to re-evaluate her family and future in a wise and bittersweet light. As the two women embark on a journey to find the one thing missing in their lives, each will come to recognize that where we belong is often where we least expect to find ourselves—a place that we may have willed ourselves to forget, but that the heart remembers forever.

We appreciate you contacting us. One of our colleagues will get back to you shortly. I had the pleasure of chatting with best-selling author Emily Giffin during a stop in L. The story follows Marian, a year-old television producer who has the perfect life in New York City, and Kirby, an year-old high school senior with a love for the drums. Marian instantly recognizes the daughter that she gave up 18 years ago and now has to face the secret that she buried down so many years ago. Giffin is simply wonderful to chat with -- she is witty, warm, and has a sense of style and charisma about her that felt as though I were talking to a real-life Carrie Bradshaw.
Her success kicked off in with Something Borrowed , a story brought to the big screen last year with a film starring Ginnifer Goodwin and Kate Hudson. Since that first novel, Emily has gained a large, loyal following — both in bookstores and on Facebook and Twitter , where she keeps in touch with her fans. Louis — who are bound by a secret. Emily says she knew early on that the book would be about belonging. Inspired by the power of secrets — when it's justified to keep them and how they change us — she chose to explore those themes through the secretive circumstances of an adoption.
Martin's Press on July 24, Where We Belong has been optioned to become a film, with Giffin serving as producer. Marian always thought that she was living the life she wanted, with no true regrets. When Kirby Rose, the child she gave up eighteen years ago, appears on her doorstep Marian is forced to re-examine her life, her family, and a past romance that threatens to overwhelm her. Reception for Where We Belong has been mixed to positive,    with the Chicago Sun-Times calling it an easy read while criticizing the book's predictability. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
