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


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.

Told in gut-wrenchingly honest language that shimmers with rage and intimacy, All Grown Up poses such questions as:
- 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 what it means to be a 21st century woman, though they might not always want to admit it.
