(Attenberg, Jami) Jami Attenberg is the New York Times bestselling author of five novels, including The Middlesteins and Saint Mazie. She has contributed essays about sex, urban life, and food to the New York Times Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, and Lenny Letter, among other publications. Attenberg’s latest novel, All Grown Up (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) is a wickedly funny novel about a thirty-nine-year-old single, childfree woman who defies convention as she seeks connection. Newsweek writes, “Jami Attenberg deftly travels inside the head of a 39-year-old woman who has no interest in doing what she’s supposed to do and follows her heart instead of her mind—a story that’s sexy, charming, and impossible to put down.”
