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

by Jami Attenberg is a funny, poignant memoir-in-essays about becoming a writer. The author of “All This Could be Yours” and “The Middlesteins” traces her journey to the page from the beginning--“I was born to be a writer”--through her rocky twenties and into what she calls “moderate” success. Along the way, she mediates on her craft, her travels, including teaching a writing class in Lithuania, and her feelings about not settling down with a husband and kids like the rest of her peers. Attenberg’s tone is warm, witty, and deeply engaging. (Non-Fiction)
