A fashion designer turned writer details her bohemian life in this illustrated memoir—“Think Eat, Pray, Love . . . only cooler” (Marie Claire).
Bella Pollen wants to feel like she belongs, but she never learned how. The middle child of transatlantic parents, she constantly moved back and forth between England and America, home and away, family and freedom. Now an adult, she struggles to contain an adventurous spirit within the confines of conventional living.
In Meet Me in the In-Between, the international bestselling author takes us on an illustrated journey through her life, from her privileged childhood in Upper Manhattan through her marriage to the son of a Mafioso, to Mexican border towns where she falls in with a crowd of Pink Floyd–loving smugglers. Throughout all, Bella grapples with relationships, motherhood, career ups and downs, and a pathological fear of being boring.
With a mix of humor and pain, this is “a poignant, beautifully written memoir” of one woman’s quest for the extraordinary in her ordinary life (The Mail on Sunday).
