Life on the Refrigerator Door is told exclusively through tes exchanged by Claire and her mother, Elizabeth, during the course of a life-altering year. Their story builds to an emotional crescendo when Elizabeth is diagsed with breast cancer. Stunningly sad but ultimately uplifting, this is a clever, moving, and original portrait of the relationship between a daughter and mother. It is about how we live our lives constantly rushing, seldom making time for those we love. It is also an elegy to how much can be said in so few words, if only we made the time to say them. A new edition of this simultaneously heartbreaking and heart-warming vel by Alice Kuipers.
Alice Kuipers was born in London in 1979. She studied at Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan Universities. In 2003, she moved to Saskatoon, Canada, where she now lives with her partner, Yann Martel. Life on the Refrigerator Door was her first novel.
