Description
Mara Wilson has always felt a little young and a little out of place. As the only child on a film set full of adults, she started out with accidental fame and journeyed to relative (but happy) obscurity, learning a lot about growing up along the way. Her collection of essays illuminates a universal struggle: learning to accept yourself and figuring out where you belong. Exquisitely crafted, revelatory, and full of the crack comic timing that has made Wilson a sought-after storyteller and Twitter star, Where Am I Now introduces a witty, perceptive new voice.

Where Am I Now? is a delight."--Ilana Glazer, cocreator and star of Broad City "Genuine and authentic, funny and heartbreaking, Where Am I Now? reminds you that no matter how unique your life is, some things bind us all together." --Jenny Lawson, author of Furiously Happy A former child actress best known for her starring roles in Matilda and Mrs. Doubtfire, Mara Wilson has always felt a little young and out of place: as the onlykid on a film set full of adults, the first daughter in a house full of boys, a Valley girl in New York and a neurotic in California, and a grown-up the world still remembers as a little girl. Tackling everything fromwhat she learned about sex on the set of Melrose Place, to discovering in adolescence that she was no longer "cute" enough for Hollywood, these essays chart her journey from accidental fame to relative (but happy) obscurity. They also illuminate universal struggles, like navigating love and loss, and figuring out who you are and where you belong. Honest, insightful, and hilarious, Where Am I Now? introduces Mara Wilson as a brilliant new chronicler of the experience that is growing up young and female"--
