Jami Attenberg will be at The Book Cellar to launch her new book, All This Could Be Yours, and will be in-conversation with Samantha Irby.
About All This Could Be Yours: As Barbra fends off Alex’s unrelenting questions, she reflects on her tumultuous life with Victor. Meanwhile Gary, Alex’s brother, is incommunicado, trying to get his movie career off the ground in Los Angeles. And Gary’s wife, Twyla, is having a nervous breakdown, buying up all the lipstick in drug stores around New Orleans and bursting into crying fits. Dysfunction is at its peak. As each family member grapples with Victor’s history, they must figure out a way to move forward—with one another, for themselves, and for the sake of their children. All This Could Be Yours is a timely novel about what it means to be tangled in a toxic man's web, and how to break free.
