9780142181195: How to Grow Up: A Memoir

A gutsy, wise, punk rock memoirin- essays from a writer praised as impossible to put down (People) Michelle Tea makes her major publishing debut with a boldly honest memoir about her stumbling journey toward the life of a Bonafide Grown-Up. As an aspiring young writer in San Francisco, Michelle lived in a scuzzy communal house; she drank, smoked, and snorted anything she got her hands on; she dated men and women and sometimes both at once; and she forged a literary career between hangovers and dead-end jobs. How did she get to become the mature, sober, thoughtful adult she is today? That s the essence of How to Grow Up. At once heartwarming, darkly comic, and unapologetically Michelle Tea, How to Grow Up is the book that will bring this incredibly talented writer the larger audience she deserves.

Review:

'The question of how to grow up might seem open-ended, abstract and unanswerable, but in Michelle Tea's capable hands it all seems so simple: in your own terms and in your own way...She may not be down-and-out anymore, but How to Grow Up proves she's as strong, sincere and original as ever; honest, wise, still brilliant and brilliantly resilient.' - -- For Book's Sake

Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 201 x 137 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A gutsy, wise memoir-in-essays from a writer praised as impossible to put down 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.But between hangovers and dead-end jobs, she scrawled in notebooks and organized dive bar poetry readings, working to make her literary dreams a reality. InHow to Grow Up, Tea shares her awkward stumble towards the life of a Bona Fide Grown-Up: healthy, responsible, self-aware, and stable. She writes about passion, about her fraught relationship with money, about adoring Barney s while shopping at thrift stores, about breakups and the fertile ground between relationships, about roommates and rent, and about being superstitious ( why not, it imbues this harsh world of ours with a bit of magic ). At once heartwarming and darkly comic, How to Grow Upproves that the road less traveled may be a difficult one, but if you embrace life s uncertainty and dust yourself off after every screw up, slowly but surely, you just might make it to adulthood. Wild, wickedly funny, and refreshingly relevant. Elle This compulsively readable collection is so damn good, you ll tear through the whole thing (and possibly take notes along the way). Bustle.
