Terry Gives Advice To New Grads, Says Not To Pity The Fool
Famous for her no-nonsense writing, best-selling novelist and single mom Terry McMillan now plays guidance counselor in a book for freshly hatched high school grads. In It's OK if You're Clueless and 23 More Tips for the College Bound, tip No. 3 is: "Don't listen to your parents. If for any reason they don't like the path you've chosen, tough nuggies."
As for her fellow baby boomer parents, she states emphatically in a phone interview, "Back off!" The author who created the feisty black women characters in Waiting to Exhale based Clueless on a commencement speech she gave at her son Solomon's 2002 graduation from a Berkeley, Calif., Catholic high school . . .
McMillan's book, out next Tuesday (Viking, $12.95), joins the graduation gift book genre. Clueless is McMillan's first foray into non-fiction. She plans to follow it up with a memoir titled Don't Pity the Fool, which will address the "whole ordeal" of her very public and extremely messy divorce from her Jamaican-born husband, Jonathan Plummer.
