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. 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.

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.

Many parents in their 50s and 60s don't know how to parent their adult children. Yet increases in health and longevity mean that parents and their children may share 40 or more years together as adults. "All Grown Up" describes how mid-life parents and their grown children can celebrate this new lease on life together by developing loving and egalitarian friendships that are positive and guilt-free. Using conflict resolution strategies borrowed from the field of mediation, a healthy respect for generation-gap issues engendered by the social revolutions of the 1960s and '70s, and a broad spiritual perspective, the author provides both practical solutions to on-going problems, as well as thought-provoking discussions of how these problems came to be. Unlike other books in the field, "All Grown Up" addresses the cultural changes of the late 20th century which deeply affect how we approach parenting, self-development and lifestyle issues. The book provides guidance on how parents of adult children can: communicate with their adult children without judgments, or fear of giving praise; let go - and share activities in a stress-free, equal way; deal with crises in their adult children's lives, knowing when and when "not" to give advice; set boundaries, limits and deadlines; avoid over-identification with their child's successes and failures, and avoid competitiveness; and build understanding, trust and compassion without prying. Wise, compassionate and helpful, "All Grown Up" will appeal to all mid-life and older parents and children, as well as mediators, therapists, and counselors.

All Grown Up Now is an autobiographical novel about one man's journey from being a green kid on Oklahoma, to being "all grown up now".Two gay men in early 1980s Oklahoma find themselves in a lifelong friendship that transcends the simple label of “friends.” When domestic violence tears their world apart, a desperate act sets the course for healing and a profound new outlook on life. A tale of retail, revenge, re-invention, reckless behavior, and really good clothes, Kenneth D. King's debut is a rollicking coming-of-age story. Growing up as a young gay man in Oklahoma City, the capital city of Places To Not Grow Up Fabulous In, King is designing Barbie dresses by the age of four and knows that his destiny lies as a fashion designer in The Big City. Which Big City isn't necessarily named—it is more of an ideal, where pageantry, fabulous parties, and beautiful clothes are the staples of life. Working tirelessly to graduate from college with a degree in fashion merchandising, he takes his first job as a window display designer, where he meets colleague Mark and strikes up a friendship that will change them both forever.When Mark moves with his significant other, Victor, to San Francisco, he takes a job as a display manager for a chain of stores and hires Ken. Big City, here he comes! But Mark and Victor keep a dark secret of spousal abuse that strains the friendship to its limits. But when Mark needs to be rescued, Ken is there to execute an intricate—and dangerous—kidnapping to save his friend. What he doesn't fully realize, however, is how dramatically that act of friendship will change the course of both of their lives.Beginning as a collection of stories that helped King make sense of an important, tumultuous friendship in his life, this riveting, non-linear depiction of their relationship and the tragic pain caused by domestic violence is as heartbreaking as it is hilarious. Depicting moments in the author's life that sparkle individually, All Grown Up Now: A Friendship in Three Acts creates a jewel of a work that is funny, engaging, and powerful.Kenneth D. King is an haute couture designer in New York. His couture clothing and accessories are in many private collections, have appeared in music videos and television commercials, and are in the permanent museum collections of the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
