Stephanie Lehmann's picture

Stephanie Lehmann

Stephanie Lehmann was born in foggy San Francisco and didn't take her sweater off until she moved away to college. She spent most of her childhood watching television. Almost every night, she fell asleep to the sound of Johnny Carson on a small General Electric black and white TV in her bedroom. This was when he still broadcast from New York City. Stephanie Lehmann's novels are THOUGHTS WHILE HAVING SEX, ARE YOU IN THE MOOD? and THE ART OF UNDRESSING. She's now at work on another one. Her son wishes she would stop having embarrassing titles. Her daughter prefers the Shopaholic books. And her husband is a high school English teacher who still writes, too. Stephanie Lehmann is no longer afraid to live in New York City.

How to Make a Life (2020)
Florence Reiss Kraut
"The world of richly drawn characters in How to Make a Life transported me on a compelling emotional journey. In a story that brings the 20th Century to life, the powerful need to assimilate threatens the very bonds that ground an immigrant family with a sense of identity as four generations adapt to a culture that reinvents itself with every decade."
