When I Grow Up
As we get older, we pass many milestones, but for some of us it can feel as if adulthood is always just out of reach.
Journalist and psychotherapist-in-training Moya Sarner goes on a journey into what growing up really involves, and how we do it again and again throughout our lives. She draws on case studies, as well as her training, and theories of child psychology, psychoanalysis, neuroscience, and more, to explore what it means to be a 'grown up' and how we can meet the challenges and opportunities of every stage of our lives.
'Searching and consoling, When I Grow Up interrogates the beliefs we hold about life's stages, and the labels we yearn for and resist. It is a generous, illuminating exploration of what it means to grow up, why we want to, and how to know when you've done it.'
-Nell Stevens, author of Bleaker House
'A deeply compassionate book that made me think differently about not only what it means to be an adult but also what it means to be a human being.'
