by Mara Wilson




Overview -
Thoughtfully traces Mara Wilson's] journey from child actress to Hollywood dropout...Who is she now? She's a writer. --NPR's Guide To 2016's Great Reads

"Growing up, I wanted to be Mara Wilson. Where Am I Now? is a delight." --Ilana Glazer, cocreator and star of Broad City

Named a best book of the month by GoodReads and Entertainment Weekly

A former child actor 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 only kid 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 from what 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. Candid, insightful, moving, and hilarious, Where Am I Now? introduces Mara Wilson as a brilliant new chronicler of the experience that is growing up female.
