Listen to Jami Attenberg HERE.
Jami Attenberg is the best! I’ve been waiting to have her back on the show ever since Emily and I interviewed her about her last book Saint Mazie. As you will hear, All Grown Up, knocked me about and triggered a lot, but in the very best heart-expanding, what-am-I-doing-with-my-life? way. If you’ve ever been single, infatuated, partnered up, in a weird, not-right relationship (this excludes no one)… if you love your mom so hard and in the same moment think she might be killing you with her emotions, this fantastic novel is for you. Jami’s protagonist Andrea is the hysterical truth-teller you’ve been looking for. Big revelations in this convo. I’m sure you’ll have some too if you listen up.
