THE ABCs OF ADULTHOOD

Here’s a book of wit and wisdom that’s perfect for graduation or any other “welcome to the adult world” moment. From New York Times bestselling author Deborah Copaken and noted sculptor Randy Polumbo come 26 genuine and funny bits of advice as surprising as they are sensible. From “A is for Anger” through “Z is for Zzzzzzz,” each entry is paired with the authors’ street-smart photography of the matching alphabet letter to create a savvy gift. Based on a viral article written by Copaken when her own firstborn left for college, The ABCs of Adulthood is a delightful, worldly riff on learning your ABCs all over again.
