Review

Praise for All Adults Here:

“Emma Straub is a perfect novelist for summer reading.” —The Wall Street Journal
 
“You’ll never want to say goodbye to the Strick family of All Adults Here, Emma Straub’s charming fourth novel.” —O, The Oprah Magazine
 
“To describe Emma Straub’s novel All Adults Here without using the word ‘charming’ is like trying to describe an accordion without using your hands. But winsome and big-hearted do fine to characterize Ms. Straub’s loosely knit, multigenerational fourth novel …Tight, flinty Astrid…seems like close kin to Elizabeth Strout’s Olive Kitteridge.” —The Wall Street Journal
  
"A master analyst of romantic relationships, Straub trains her eye on family dynamics and small-town life in this witty and wise tale.” —People Magazine
 
“Delivers a Dose of Normal Life, Right When We Need It. . .  Straub cements her status as a master of the domestic ensemble drama.”—TIME

“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

"A beach read with teeth.” —The New Republic

“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

“Deliciously funny and infectiously warm … It's an ideal read for anyone trapped at home with their family while self-isolating. Read it while hiding in your bedroom from the people who are driving you crazy, but who you'd go crazy without.” The Philadelphia Inquirer
 
“There's no drama like family drama as Emma Straub (Modern Lovers, Other People We Married) proves in this touching, humorous, and eye-opening new novel.” —Town and Country 
  
“Triumphant.” —The Daily Beast

“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

“Emma Straub’s writing is witty, informal and deceptively simple, drawing readers in as if they’re having a conversation with a close friend.”  —BookPage

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

Amazon.com Review

An Amazon Best Book of May 2020: Astrid Strick is about to get her hair done when she witnesses an acquaintance being hit by a bus, an event that frees a repressed memory from the time when she was raising her three children. Said children are now all grown up, at least in age: her youngest son, a former teen star and current pothead, has just shipped his thirteen-year-old daughter to live with Astrid after an incident at her New York school. Astrid’s oldest is working on real estate development deals in town—but he seems to be seeking validation and is only sure of the fact that he wants to escape his children. And her only girl is working on a goat farm and about to become a single mother who just can’t quit her (married) high school boyfriend. Straub perfectly captures the warmth and messiness of families, and the truth that no matter how old we get, our family always reduces us to childhood patterns. While Straub takes on some big topics: sexuality, abortion, gender identity, we’ll all see our own families reflected back to us through the Stricks. All Adults Here is a fresh and not unhopeful take on family dysfunction. It’s the perfect smart summer read. —Sarah Gelman, Amazon Book Review --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
