Praise for All Adults Here:

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

“Straub etches in the comforting, often funny truths readers love her for. Like us, her characters are always getting older but never feeling quite old enough to do the right thing, to be the people they want to be, to let go of the past, and they’re certainly never ready to die. An all-out celebration of the life force in ourselves and in our families. . . Straub’s novels are dearly beloved, and this might be her best yet.”—Booklist, STARRED

“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

“Straub’s most recent novel. . .  like her others, gets at the messy heart of family life.”—Vogue

“As per usual, Straub’s writing is heartfelt and earnest, without tipping over the edge. There are a lot of issues at play here (abortion, bullying, IVF, gender identity, sexual predators) that Straub easily juggles, and her strong and flawed characters carry the day. This affecting family saga packs plenty of punch.” —Publishers Weekly, STARRED

“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

“Wise, funny and startlingly relatable.”—Pure Wow

“Prepare for a smart, of-the-moment take on a family in turmoil.”—The Washington Post

“As always, Straub . . .draws her characters warmly, making them appealing in their self-centeredness and generosity, their insecurity and hope. . . . Straub has a sharp eye for her characters’ foibles and the details of their liberal, upper-middle-class milieu. With humor and insight, Straub creates a family worth rooting for.”—Kirkus
