How to Grow Up: A Memoir
By

Rating
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? At once heart-warming, 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.
