Parents once dreamed of dropping their prodigies at first-choice colleges and sighing with relief at a job well done. Nowadays, though, mothers and fathers are stressing about whether Jessica or Josh will boomerang back after graduation--and still be there years later. Why are so many wunderkinds now s-l-o-w-l-y slouching toward adulthood? Panicked after reading that twenty-eight is the new nineteen, Sally Koslow--journalist and mother--searched for answers. Part hard-hitting investigation and part hilarious memoir, "Slouching Toward Adulthood" is a heartfelt cri de coeur that can help families negotiate life around the unexpectedly crowded dining tables for years to come.
