All Grown Up

(2017)
A novel by

 

"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


From the New York Times best-selling author of The Middlesteins comes a wickedly funny novel about a 39-year-old single, childfree woman who defies convention as she seeks connection.

Who is Andrea Bern? When her 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 an entirely different idea of what it means to be an adult: her best friend, Indigo, is getting married; her brother - who miraculously seems unscathed by their shared tumultuous childhood - and sister-in-law are having a hoped-for baby; and her friend Matthew continues to wholly devote himself to making dark paintings at the cost of being flat broke. 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 power as a storyteller, a whip-smart examination of one woman's life, lived entirely on her own terms.
