“Thoughtfully traces [Mara Wilson’s] journey from child actress to Hollywood dropout…Who¬†is she now? She’s a writer.”¬†‚ÄîNPR’s¬†”Guide To 2016‚Äôs Great Reads”‚ÄúGrowing up, I wanted to¬†be¬†Mara Wilson.¬†Where Am I Now?¬†is a delight.‚Äù ‚ÄîIlana Glazer, cocreator and star of¬†Broad CityNamed a best book of the month by GoodReads and¬†Entertainment WeeklyA 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 ‚Äúcute‚Äù 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.
