Waterstones Says

Witty, warm and thoroughly entertaining, All Adults Here is a delicious dissection of the challenges of modern family life. In this poignant and beautifully observed domestic drama that brims with emotion and relatable characters, Straub renders visible the little absurdities of everyday life in an irresistible manner.

Coming of age isn't just for kids.

Astrid Strick has always tried to do her best for her three children. Now, they're finally grown up - but you could be forgiven for thinking otherwise.

Elliott doesn't have any idea who he really is, or how to communicate with his own sons. Porter is, at last, pregnant - but feels incapable of rising to the challenge. Nicky has fled to distant New Mexico, where he's living the bohemian dream.

And Astrid herself is up to things that would make her children's hair curl.

Until now, the family have managed to hide their true selves from each other. But when Nicky's incorrigibly curious daughter Cecelia comes to stay, her arrival threatens to upturn everything . . .

Witty, astute, and irresistibly readable, All Adults Here is a novel about how to survive inside a modern family from New York Times bestselling author Emma Straub.
