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.

Emma Straub
In her witty new novel, All Adults Here, Emma Straub examines adolescence, ageing, gender, and sexuality through the nuanced experiences of three generations of a New York family * Harper's Bazaar US * All Adults Here is a master class on the small-scale American drama. There's a wry wink in the title; being grown up is no guarantee that you have it figured out. Ensconced in their upstate New York bubble, the Strick clan is the perfect show case...Yet 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 US * It would be easy to compare Straub to other masters of the genre like Meg Wolitzer or Jennifer Egan, but she's already a master in her own right * The Millions * The queen of the summer novel...we have turned to Emma Straub to bring us highly enjoyable, yet still thought-provoking, tales about witty protagonists in the throes of life changes * Entertainment Weekly * Straub is consistently excellent * Book Riot * Set over the course of an upstate New York summer, this shrewd, kindly tale embraces a topical spread of inter-generational challenges, yielding tart truths about love, class and family. It's spry and satisfying. * Mail on Sunday * 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 * Booklist, Starred Review * Busting with witty and poignant observations about the messiness of family -- Jenna Bush Hager * Read with Jenna Book Club Pick * Warm and big-hearted . . . leaves you smiling for days * bestselling author of Where'd You Go, Bernadette * Emma Straub has done it again! All Adults Here introduces us to the Stricks, a delightfully flawed family, with matriarch Astrid at the centre...I know I've been having trouble adulting during this time (seriously, I have to cook, again?!), and the characters in this novel feel like they're struggling right alongside me * Read It Forward * All Adults Here will make you question your entire childhood * Marie Claire US * Thoughtful and hilarious * Real Simple * A novel full of poignant insights into family * Woman & Home * Pulsating with perceptive wit . . . entertaining * Sunday Post * A funny and insightful look at love and relationships * Good Housekeeping * Smart and funny and warm, the kind of novel you fall into and don't ever want to end, which is exactly what we need now * The Times * A precise and observant writer whose supple prose carries the story along without a snag. Straub's characters are a quirky and interesting bunch . . . it's a pleasure spending time with them * Kirkus * No less charming than the rest of her oeuvre, about one family growing up and ageing, and how the parent-child roles between parents and their children is swapped * Thrillist * Funny, poignant and beautifully observed Whips along with feel-good momentum, driven by warmth and love * Press Association * All Adults Here is deliciously funny and infectiously warm - a clever blend of levity and poignant insights. Straub's flair for irony and wit shine, and she puts a fresh (and progressive) spin on the age-old multigenerational family saga * Washington Post * Straub writes with such verve and sympathetic understanding of her characters . . . Reading this novel has all the pleasures of reading one of Anne Tyler's compelling family portraits * New York Times * It's the beautifully drawn, vibrant characters that make this smart, compelling novel so irresistible Written with true warmth and wit * Bella * Unlike parents when it comes to their children, novel readers are allowed to have favourite characters. This will be an impossible task for many readers of All Adults Here, in which Emma Straub switches among the perspectives of eight characters who are all endearing in their disarmingly muddleheaded or abjectly truth-seeking ways...gasp-worthy...belongs in the company of Cathleen Schine, Tom Perrotta and other fiction writers who understand that the degree of humour that can be teased from family drama is often directly proportional to the extent of the family's misery * Shelf Awareness * A novel about how we try and fail at every age and yet somehow survive. It is brimming with kindness, forgiveness, humour 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 -- Ann Patchett A warm and witty story about a family learning to accept the mistakes of the past and feeling their way towards a new, more truthful way of being together. Emma Straub has such a wonderful talent for depicting small-town existence, as well as the challenges and frustrations of family life, that I was utterly immersed in the world of the Stricks. It's one of those books that leaves you feeling as if you've visited a new place and met new friends. All Adults Here is a joy to read -- Sarah Haywood, author of <i>The Cactus</i> If you can imagine a glorious mash-up of Elizabeth Strout and Gilmore Girls, All Adults Here is it * Red * Smart and fresh, offering new insights into the lives of people all around us * Brooklyn Magazine * In All Adults Here, Straub cements her status as a master of the domestic ensemble drama. While readers will relate to the comfortable familiarity of Straub's work, it has also taken on an unexpected air of escapism * Time Magazine * Likely to be the book that every single person will be reading this summer * Bookpage * A smart, cool sensibility * Elle * Perceptive and fun * AARP * Straub writes beautifully and amusingly . . . hard to beat for sheer charm and gentle wit * Daily Mail * Readers will devour this witty and warmly satisfying novel * Publishers Weekly * Praise for Emma Straub * - * Lovely, satisfying Literary sunshine * New York Times * A wonderful read -- Elizabeth Strout Hugely talented . . . intelligent holiday reading There's no drama like family drama as Emma Straub proves in this touching, humorous, and eye-opening new novel...

Fans of Ann Patchett, Anne Tyler and Lily King should seek [Straub] out * The Sunday Times * Sprinkled with humour and insight * Library Journal * It takes rare skill to make everyday family ups and downs so pleasurable to read but Straub brings both a deceptive light touch and a flinty sense of humour to this breezy big-hearted portrait of ordinary people trying to negotiate the landscape of being a grown up.

like to live as an adult in the same place where you grew up * Deadline * As always, Straub draws her characters warmly, making them appealing in their self-centeredness and generosity, their insecurity and hope. . . .
