Waiting to Exhale

Terry McMillan, McMillan. Pocket Books, $6.5 (416pp) ISBN 978-0-671-86417-0

McMillan's zesty novel tells the stories of four 30ish black women bound together by warm, supportive friendship and by their dwindling hopes of finding Mr. Right. Pocket paid a whopping $2.64 million for Exhale , which was a 29-week PW bestseller in cloth. (May)
