Spring is about new beginnings, this year—for me—more than ever. In May, to synchronize with graduations, Slouching Toward Adulthood: How to Let Go So Your Kids will Grow Up will be released as a paperback, enlarged with a preface and discussion guide. This book addresses the reality that millions of American parents have sent their kids to college only to have them ricochet home with diplomas in one hand and DVR remotes in the other. Many moms and dads now sit down to dinner every night, wondering why their fully grown children are joining them or, more likely, grunting good-bye as they head out for another night of who knows what. As a mother I lived through this stage and as a journalist, decided to explore what lies behind the current generation’s unwillingness—or inability—to take flight. For more than a year, I spoke with frustrated parents and equally frustrated “adultescents.” The New Yorker had this to say about the book. If you click reviews, you’ll find what critics thought and can also check out what reporters found about this topic, which hasn’t stopped being news.
On June 28th, The Widow Waltz, my fourth novel, will be published. Told through the alternating perspectives of a mother and two daughters, the book digs into how to redefine your life in the face of devastating loss. As the cover suggests, despite the depth of the topic, there is warmth and lightness, too, which makes this novel one I can imagine you relaxing with this summer. You can pre-order The Widow Waltz now—here’s the link. My other novels—The Late, Lamented Molly Marx; Little Pink Slips and With Friends Like These--are also available. Hope you’ll fill your beach bag and read them all.
Enjoy the sunshine!
