Author Emma Straub

Emma Straub is the New York Times bestselling author of novels such as All Adults Here, The Vacationers, and Modern Lovers. Additionally, she and her husband own Books Are Magic, an independent bookstore in Brooklyn, New York. Her latest novel is This Time Tomorrow. In this story we meet Alice who, as she approaches 40, knows that her life isn’t what she thought it’d be, but it isn’t bad, with the exception of her ailing father. On what should be the morning of her 40th birthday, she awakens instead in 1996, her 16th birthday. Alice finds herself in the unique position to consider, if you could revisit your teenage self, what would you do differently or try doing over again?
