At a time when such things were rare, Elinor Fuchs's mother, Lil, escaped a miserable marriage and launched a career that led her from the Midwest to Washington, D.C. She left Elinor to be raised by grandparents, and eventually to despise her mother's values and keep her distance. Making an Exit is the moving account of what happened afterward - the unexpected love story of a career-driven mother, a once-resentful daughter, and a ten-year battle with Alzheimer's.
