An anthropologist and a publisher walk into an apartment . . .
. . . and walk out with a collection of personal stories from around the world that investigate what it means to be a grown-up. Stories about change, grief, love, uncertainty. About that moment when you realize that you are the grown-up. About the unanswerable questions and the mundane tasks.
