I Came All This Way to Meet You: Writing Myself Home

Author:

From the publisher: "In this brilliant, fierce, and funny memoir of transformation, Jami Attenberg reveals the defining moments that pushed her to create a life, and voice, she could claim for herself. What does it take to devote oneself to art? What does it mean to own one’s ideas? What does the world look like for a woman moving solo through it? As the daughter of a traveling salesman in the Midwest, Attenberg was drawn to a life on the road. Frustrated by quotidian jobs and hungry for inspiration and fresh experiences, her wanderlust led her across the country and eventually on travels around the globe. Through it all she grapples with questions of mortality, otherworldliness, and what we leave behind. It is during these adventures that she begins to reflect on the experiences of her youth—the trauma, the challenges, the risks she has taken. Driving across America on self-funded book tours, sometimes crashing on couches when she was broke, she keeps writing: in researching articles for magazines, jotting down ideas for novels, and refining her craft, she grows as an artist and increasingly learns to trust her gut and, ultimately, herself."

All Grown Up

$12.99$3.99Audiobook: 4.49 (Whispersync)
Author:

When judge Laia Garcia picked this title for March's BOTM, she said, "I’m only on page eleven of All Grown Up, but I can already tell that this is the perfect book to read on the first day of my 'grown-woman takes first-ever alone vacation to an exotic location in order to shed past and re-emerge more powerful than ever.' I will sit in a banquet in the hotel restaurant and will read the book in one sitting, while drinking lots of coffee and eating Spanish pastries. Like me and my friends. Andrea is a woman unlike many others I've come across in my readings. She's not perfect, but her imperfections are not steeped in the tragic. We meet all her friends and romantic conquests, and learn how they came into Andrea's life in short chapters that could stand alone as short stories. So you can read the book slowly, like for a month, on your commute, or sit with it and devour it because what’s the point of saving it for later? A book for the women who are warned, but persist." Add Audible narration for $4.49.
