Summary
It used to be, when your child went to college, they were starting out on their own. Nowadays, many will boomerang back after graduation--and still be living with their parents a decade or more later. Why are so many of these carefully nurtured wunderkinds now moving so slowly toward adulthood? That's what intrigued--and frightened--Sally Koslow, successful journalist, novelist, and mother of two. She spent a year delving into the latest research and conducting probing interviews with both frustrated parents and their flummoxed offspring, trying to get a better understanding of what's going on with Americans aged 22 to 35. Part hard-hitting investigation and part hilarious memoir, Slouching Toward Adulthood captures the confusion, angst, and, happily, the adaptability of both parents and young adults as they cope with the familial tremors caused by a bad economy, parents who can't or won't let go, and "adultescents."--From publisher description
