Kirkus Review gives a star to All This Could Be Yours and says: “Prickly and unsentimental, but never quite hopeless, Attenberg, poet laureate of difficult families, captures the relentlessly lonely beauty of being alive. Not a gentle novel but a deeply tender one.”
All This Could Be Yours, a novel set in New Orleans will be published on November 12, 2019. And last spring AFAR published this essay: In Guatemala, a Solo Traveler Learns It’s Sometimes Best to Leap Before You Look.
All Grown Up appeared on some Best Books of 2017 lists, including those of NPR, Kirkus, Amazon, BuzzFeed, Elle, PBS, Bust, The New York Post, Electric Literature, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Book Riot, Vogue.com, The Stranger, Bustle, Globe and Mail and Huffington Post. Also, seven spring tour events have been announced.
Two new pieces of writing are up: an essay on dating apps in The Times Style Magazine
and a book review in The New York Times Book Review. I'm also delighted to announce a recent sale of All Grown Up to a publisher in Portugal, which brings the publication count for the book to 13 countries. And in Germany, The Kept Man has finally been translated and is out now.
A new essay on a trip to Palermo is available here. Plus The Guardian says All Grown Up has "hope, in spades." and The Irish Independent says, "the prose remains zesty, sharp and thought-provoking throughout."
All Grown Up appears in the March issue of Marie Claire's "What We're Reading" list. ("Bravo to Attenberg, who, with hilarity and honesty, tells the story of an adult woman who wants what she wants, not what she's supposed to want.") It also makes an appearance on Tablet's Seven Jewish Literary Fiction Books To Read This Year list, Autostraddle's 45 Queer and Feminist Books You Need to Read in Early 2017 list, and Bustle's 15 Most Anticipated Feminist Book Releases of 2017 list.
