All Grown Up

eBook

A National Bestseller
"I read it twice, laughing, cringing, and even tearing up." — Judy Blume, New York Times
"Powerful . . . All Grown Up is so intimately [and] sharply observed." — Vogue

"Bravo to Attenberg, who, with hilarity and honesty, tells the story of an adult woman who wants what she wants, not what she's supposed to want." — Marie Claire

Who is Andrea Bern? When her dippy therapist asks the question, Andrea knows the right things to say: she's a designer, a friend, a daughter, a sister. But it's what she leaves unsaid—she's alone, a drinker, a former artist, a shrieker in bed, captain of the sinking ship that is her flesh—that feels the most true. Everyone around her seems to have a different idea of what it means to be an adult, though. But when Andrea's niece finally arrives, born with a heartbreaking ailment, the Bern family is forced to reexamine what really matters. Will this drive them together or tear them apart? Told in gut-wrenchingly honest, mordantly comic vignettes, All Grown Up is a breathtaking display of Jami Attenberg's powers as a storyteller and a whip-smart examination of one woman's life, lived entirely on her own terms.
