Praise for How To Grow Up
"Wild, wickedly funny, and refreshingly relevant." -Elle
"An impassioned and honest take on a difficult topic: life itself."
-The Boston Globe "Hilarious... Tea has a style, and a sense of
humor, all her own." -The SF Gate "Brave and unexpectedly
wise....Michelle Tea is a goddess." -The SF Examiner
"Straight up riveting." -PAPER Magazine ..".This compulsively
readable collection is so damn good, you'll tear through the whole
thing (and possibly take notes along the way)." -Bustle "An
engaging and darkly funny memoir." -Kirkus "Charming."
-Publishers Weekly "The peerless Michelle Tea reflects on
her thoroughly extraordinary life." -Largehearted Boy
"Fascinating... a fearless and honest writer." -Flavorwire "A
beautiful book with plenty of self-effacing humor" -BoldItalic "Her
'meandering and counterintuitive' path may not inspire imitators.
But Tea's candid and colorful writing...speaks to her ability to
function as an adult without losing sight of her wackier self."
