The Magic of Ordinary: A Memoir

"A daddy, his daughters, and the power of one good man to change the world."


"Melissa Gouty writes the magical story of all our lives in The Magic of Ordinary. If you grew up in the '60s and '70s, this is an Our Town for our generation." - Teresa Mederiros

"Gouty's childhood, which seems idyllic in many ways, is also a story that many of us who have had normal childhoods with responsible, supportive families can relate to.....She invites readers to relive her childhood and succeeds in highlighting the universality of the human experience... unexpectedly satisfying father-daughter story that makes you believe in magic." - Ranjani Rao
