Product description

Review

"Wilson's humorous literary voice tells the story of growing up as a young female in the spotlight (and eventually stepping out of it) and the road of self-acceptance, discovery and everything in between." --BuzzFeed

"[Wilson] returns as a talented writer with this collection of essays." --Entertainment Weekly, "15 Books You Have to Read in September"

"Funny [and] insightful." --GoodReads, "Best Books of the Month"

"Wilson has left the acting (almost) completely behind -- and moved on to become a talented writer and playwright." --Bustle,"12 Memoirs By Badass Women to Add To Your Wishlist in Fall 2016"

"Candid...witty and insightful. A-" --InTouch

"Contains engaging, poignant accounts of the actress-turned-storyteller's struggles to find her identity after losing her mother and Hollywood's adoration...Wilson covers difficult topics but can leaven a painful anecdote with incisive wit...When fans ask for a picture with her, she panics: 'I don't photograph well, and...they're going to put it on the Internet, where not everyone knows I'm funny and charming and generally a decent person.' And that's exactly how she comes across in this memoir." --ShelfAwareness

"Lyrical and affecting . . . humorous, relatable, and ultimately real. . . [Where Am I Now?] is more than just another Hollywood memoir; it is a truly refreshing coming-of-age story." --Library Journal

"A heartfelt portrait . . . [Mara Wilson] has experienced a great many highs as well as lows in her young life, and she shares them all with honesty, humor, and humility." --Publishers Weekly

"A coming-of-age story that is not only entertaining, but also wise. . . . A readably candid, sharp memoir." --Kirkus Reviews

"Uplifting...charming and accessible." --Booklist

"Refreshingly earnest...If Where Am I Now? and its biting wit and charming self-awareness is anything to go by, [Wilson is] very easily running in the same league as the Lena Dunhams, Rachel Blooms and Ilana Glazers of the world." --National Post (Canada)

"Growing up, I wanted to BE Mara Wilson. I always loved that she portrayed strong characters, especially as a female, even as a young child. Where Am I Now? is a delight." --Ilana Glazer, co-creator and star of Broad City

"Genuine and authentic, funny and heartbreaking, Where Am I Now? is a book that reminds you that no matter how unique your life is, some things bind us all together." --Jenny Lawson, author of Furiously Happy and Let's Pretend this Never Happened

"Former child star Mara Wilson has grown up to be a moving, funny, and thoughtful storyteller. Well, not up. As I understand it, she's still approximately the same height." --Megan Amram, author of Science...for Her!

"You don't have to be a fellow neurotic Jew who grew up in Southern California to adore this book. Though Mara Wilson's childhood was unique, the themes of Where Am I Now? are universal." --Rachel Bloom, creator and star of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Book Description

Honest, insightful, and hilarious, Where Am I Now? introduces Mara Wilson as a brilliant new chronicler of the experience that is growing up female.
