From the New York Times best-selling author of The Middlesteins comes a wickedly funny novel about a thirty-nine-year-old single, childfree woman who defies convention as she seeks connection. Join us in celebrating Jami Attenberg's paperback launch of All Grown Up with Rumaan Alam, author of Rich & Pretty, Mary H.K. Choi, whose book Emergency Contact is coming out in March, and Maeve Higgins, comedian and host of the podcast «Maeve in America: Immigration IRL»!

About the book:

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 an entirely 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 “[an] exquisitely of-the-moment novel” (Oprah Magazine) about “what is means to be a woman and a grown-up in today’s times” (PopSugar).
