A witty and insightful report from the parenting trenches by the mother of two "adultescents."
Sally Koslow, who was born and raised in Fargo, North Dakota, is the former editor in chief of McCall's magazine. Married and the mother of two sons, she lives in New York City. Little Pink Slips is her first novel. Coleen Marlo is an accomplished actor who has appeared on stage, in film, and on television, and is a member of the prestigious Actors Studio. She also taught acting for ten years at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. An AudioFile Earphones Award winner, Coleen has been awarded three Listen-Up Awards from Publishers Weekly, including for Third World America by Arianna Huffington and The Poisoner's Handbook by Deborah Blum. She has also earned three Audie Award nominations, winning for Snakewoman of Little Egypt by Robert Hellenga. Publishers Weekly has named Coleen Audiobook Reader of the Year for 2010.
Like millions of American parents, author Sally Koslow sent her children off to college, only to have them return home due to a bad economy and limited job options. In Slouching Toward Adulthood, Koslow shares her research and interviews on the phase she calls "adultescence." More at NPR.org
