Summary
A heartfelt coming-of-age memoir about taking the unbeaten path, owning a home, and holding it all—including yourself—together.Detouring from the traditional timeline of marriage-kids-house, twenty-six-year-old Vikki Warner skips straight to homeownership. She buys a downtrodden three-story house in Providence, Rhode Island, and suddenly finds herself responsible for a rotating cast of colorful tenants. Adulthood comes with unforeseen challenges: backed-up sewage, gentrification, global economic downturn. A candid portrait of how sharing space profoundly reshapes our lives, and forces us to grow into ourselves."Forget the marriage plot; 26-year-old Warner is after a plot of land.... [An] ebullient memoir."—O, The Oprah Magazine"Refreshingly original reading."—Kirkus Reviews"A thoughtful meditation on communal living and urban identity.... Quirky and fun."—The Providence Monthly"Wry, smart, personal, and pretty damn punk rock."—Kate Schatz, author of Rad Women Worldwide"Cheers to Vikki Warner, whose tenacious and inspiring coming-of-age story gives voice to a new generation of independent women and grown-ass boss ladies."—Margot Kahn, coeditor of This is the Place"Full of color, life, and that special type of real, earned wisdom that only comes with taking risks and trusting completely in your own young self."—Kate Bolick, author of Spinster: Making a Life of One's Own"An ode to the messiness of life, Tenemental is the incredibly raw, touching, and laugh-out-loud story of a woman figuring out how to get by in the world."—Emma Ramadan, co-owner of Riffraff Bookstore
