Out of stock



Emma Straub is the New York Times-bestselling author of three other novels The Vacationers, Modern Lovers, Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures, and the short story collection Other People We Married. When Astrid Strick witnesses a school bus accident in the center of town, it jostles loose a repressed memory from her young parenting days, decades earlier. Suddenly, Astrid realizes she was not quite the parent she thought she’d been to her three, now-grown children. But to what consequence? Her youngest son is drifting and unfocused; her daughter is pregnant but struggling to give up her own adolescence. And her eldest son seems to measure his adult life according to standards no one else shares. Who gets to decide which long-ago lapses were the ones that mattered? In All Adults Here (Riverhead Books), Emma Straub brings her wisdom and humor to a story about adult siblings, aging parents, high school boyfriends, and all the many things that follow us into adulthood, whether we like them to or not. The New York Times called it “Literary sunshine.”
