Praise

Praise for All Adults Here:

“Emma Straub’s warm-hearted fourth novel confirms her reign as a patron saint of delayed adolescence.”—NPR

“‘Literary sunshine’ is a good way to think of Straub’s work. Her writing and tone are consistently bright and straightforward; her approach to character is warm and generous . . . The main pleasures of All Adults Here ome from Straub’s wry comic instincts (a pair of hyperaggressive twin toddlers are hilariously appalling) and her gimlet eye for cultural observation  . . . Her wit extends out from the individual characters into a larger commentary on the difficulties of becoming an adult, making this an especially rich addition to the author’s body of work.”  —The New York Times

“Undeniably pleasing . . . a kind of thinking-person’s beach read that’s maybe all the better for arriving in these strange, landlocked times.”—Entertainment Weekly

“It’s a credit to Straub’s gifts of wit and observation that she’s made such a loving book so alive. Reading All Adults Here, you feel like maybe your life isn’t so small, that its minor joys and pitfalls are worthy of literature. If only Straub could be the one to document it.”—USA Today

“An immensely charming and warmhearted book. It’s a vacation for the soul.”—Vox

 “A warm, smart novel that feels both very ‘now,’ but also timeless in its survey of a family trying to become one again.”—Salon

“Fresh and funny. . .  ripe with the kind of juicy gossip perfect for swapping with a favorite sibling via late-night, hushed phone calls. . . .”— The Washington Post

 “There’s refuge to be found in stories of everyday people going about their lives. . . . Emma Straub has become adept at finding amusement in the mundane, and her newest, All Adults Here, might just be her best yet.” —O, The Oprah Magazine

“The queen of the summer novel.”—Entertainment Weekly
 
“Straub’s best book yet . . .excellent book-group fodder.”—The Washington Post
 
All Adults Here is a master class on the small-scale American drama. . . this warm, optimistic novel argues that one should keep trying, regardless. All Adults Here affirms the value of community and family, no matter the strife that may rise up within them.” —Vogue

“The perfect book to read during quarantine if your family is driving you crazy . . . a layered love story that examines, and ultimately celebrates, the modern, multigenerational family dynamic.”—Parade
 
 “This new novel from New York Times bestselling author of The Vacationers and Modern Lover is at its core about family in all its loving, messy glory… It’s a page-turner that will make you think about what binds families together and drives them apart.” —Good Morning America

All Adults Here is a novel about how we try and fail at every age and yet somehow survive. It is brimming with kindness, forgiveness, humor and love and yet (magically) is also a page turner that held me captive until it was finished. This is Emma Straub’s absolute best and the world will love it. I love it.”—Ann Patchett, New York Times bestselling author of Commonwealth

“A totally engaging and smart book about the absolutely marvelous messiness of what makes up family; a wonderful book.” —Elizabeth Strout, New York Times bestselling and Pulitzer Prize winning author of Olive Kitteridge and Olive, Again

“Emma Straub’s All Adults Here will make you question your entire childhood, and how much your parents influenced it as you learn one mother’s perspective of what went right and what went wrong with her own family.”—Marie Claire

“No one writes family drama like Straub, and in her new novel All Adults Here, she brings the Strick family to life with her unique wit and wisdom. . . .  It’s a heartfelt, grounded story about family dynamics, forgiveness, and the unavoidable effects we have on those we love.”—Buzzfeed
