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.
