All Grown Up

(2017)
A novel by

 
 
'Hilarious, courageous and mesmerising' Maria Semple

'Think BBC's Fleabag set in Brooklyn' Stylist

'I'm alone. I'm a drinker. I'm a former artist. I'm a shrieker in bed. I'm the captain of the sinking ship that is my flesh.'

Andrea is a single, childless 39-year-old woman who tries to navigate family, sexuality, friendships and a career she never wanted, but battles with thoughts and desires that few people would want to face up to.

Gut-wrenchingly honest and shimmering with rage and intimacy, All Grown Up questions what it means to be a 21st century woman:

- What if I don't want to hold your baby?
- Can I date you without ever hearing about your divorce?
- What can I demand of my mother now that I am an adult?
- Is therapy pointless?
- At what point does drinking a lot become a drinking problem?
- Why does everyone keep asking me why I am not married?

Powerfully intelligent and wickedly funny, All Grown Up delves into the psyche of a flawed but mesmerising character. Readers will recognise themselves in Jami Attenberg's truthful account of womanhood, though they might not always want to admit it.

Genre: General Fiction    

Praise for this book

"Vital reading for women and men alike." - Stefan Merrill Block

"Jami Attenberg's All Grown Up is one part Denis Johnson, one part Grace Paley, but all her. Every sentence pulls taut and glows--electric, gossipy, searing fun that is also a map to how to be more human." - Alexander Chee

"I read the first page of All Grown Up and knew the novelist was going to outdo herself. I am happy to report that she most certainly did." - Helen Ellis

"Jami Attenberg has written her frankest, funniest, and most riveting and heartbreaking book yet." - Emily Gould

"This is a good proud urban book, a sad and specific blast for the fearless to read. Thank you Jami." - Eileen Myles

"Hilarious, courageous, and mesmerizing from page one, All Grown Up is a little gem that packs a devastating wallop. It's that rare book I'm dying to give all my friends so we can discuss it deep into the night. I'm in awe of Jami Attenberg." - Maria Semple

"This novel is beautiful and brutal, intelligent and funny, frank and sexy." - Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney
