Indies Introduce


  • Grown Ups, Marie Aubert, Rosie Hedger (Transl.)
    Pushkin Press, 9781782277088, June 21, 2022 (Fiction)

    “I didn’t expect to like this book, and then I read it all in one sitting. What a deliciously catty pearl of a read. The storyline is succinct and polished. You probably won’t like any of the characters, but that’s what makes following the interpersonal dumpster fire so much fun.”

    - Stacey Morin-Wilson, Porter Square Books, Cambridge, MA

    Grown Ups is a novel you can devour in one sitting. This story will resonate with readers of all ages and circumstances.  At the center of the story are Ida and Marthe, two adult sisters who are in very different stages in life. Throw in a weekend at the family cabin in Norway to celebrate their mother turning 65 — and you have drama! Marie Aubert writes what we all want to say but society tells us that we should not. Grab a copy and be ready for a story you will soon not forget.”

    Anne Frey, Watermark Books & Cafe, Wichita, KS

    “I was hooked from the first line of Grown Ups, Marie Aubert’s wickedly fun novel about people behaving badly: ‘Other people’s children, always, everywhere.’ Sibling rivalry, midlife crises, and uneasy adulthood all come into play in this delicious trainwreck of a book.”

    Jhoanna Belfer, Bel Canto Books, Long Beach, CA
