The Adults by Alison Espach.. This coming of age story is much more complex than its Cheever-y setting might first cause the reader to suppose. If Hepburn were around and young still, would she play the heroine of this tale? Time seems to telescope like that.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"… a jaunty tone poem about the indeterminate years of young adulthood.."

Washington Post

"Wry rather than out-loud funny, laced with melancholy and angst, this book is an enviable first effort.."

Kirkus Reviews
