'I'm alone. I'm a drinker. I'm a former artist. I'm a shrieker in bed. I'm the captain of the sinking ship that is my flesh.'

 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.

 Gut-wrenchingly honest and shimmering with rage and intimacy, All Grown Up questions what it means to be a 21st century woman:

 - 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 womanhood, though they might not always want to admit it.
