Nowadays, though, instead of exchanging high fives, mothers and fathers are stressing out about whether their student will boomerang back after graduation - and still be living with them a decade or more later, like a good number of the neighbors kids ...Why are so many of these carefully nurtured wunderkinds now slouching, often s-l-o-w-l-y, towards adulthood? Thats what intrigued Sally Koslow, successful journalist, novelist and mother of two. Panicked after reading a study that declared twenty-eight as the new nineteen, she went in search of answers and spent a year trying to get a better understanding of whats going on with Americans aged twenty-two to thirty five. Part hard-hitting investigation and part hilarious memoir, Slouching Towards Adulthood captures the confusion, angst and, happily, the adaptability of both parents and young adults as they cope with the familial tremors caused by a bad economy, parents who cant or wont let go, and adultescents reared on the mantra Youre special.
