a€œA gutsy, wise memoir-in-essays from a writer praised as a€˜impossible to put downa€™a€a€”People From the author of the acclaimed genre-bending Black Wave comes this moving personal essay collection about the trials and triumphs of shedding your vices in order to find yourself. As an aspiring young writer in San Francisco, Michelle Tea lived in a scuzzy communal house: she drank; she smoked; she snorted anything she got her hands on; she toiled for the minimum wage; she dated men and women, and sometimes both at once.

At once heartwarming and darkly comic, How to Grow Up proves that the road less traveled may be a difficult one, but if you embrace lifea€™s uncertainty and dust yourself off after every screw up, slowly but surely, you just might make it to adulthood. a€œWild, wickedly funny, and refreshingly relevant.a€ a€”Elle a€œThis compulsively readable collection is so damn good, youa€™ll tear through the whole thing (and possibly take notes along the way).a€ a€”Bustle From the Trade Paperback edition.a€œA gutsy, wise memoir-in-essays from a writer praised as a€˜impossible to put downa€™a€a€”People From the author of the acclaimed genre-bending Black Wave comes this moving personal essay collection about the trials and triumphs of ...
