Product Description

Weakness has always been a concern for William Miller. Growing up vegetarian in a family of bodybuilders will do that to a person. But William is further weakened by the death of his mother, the arrival of a new stepmother, and his irrepressible crush on his new stepsister, Lulu. As Lulu faces down her own challenges, William watches his life shift into tumult and despair. Once Lulu departs for college, Will goes into the world to find himself— discovering Western philosophy, a cruel dating world, enduring friendship, and, ultimately, his true calling. Emboldened by his turn as a late-night radio personality, Will rescues himself from the self-image of weakness he'd long wished to escape. This debut novel explores the fundamental difference between where we come from—and the endless possibilities of where we may go.


“Evison’s debut—of love and loss, growing up, throwing up and moving on—is a stunner. . . . Evison provides readers a viciously funny and deeply felt portrayal of a blended family and one man’s thwarted longing.”
      —Publishers Weekly [starred review]

“Evison’s debut novel glows with evocative details and unforgettable scenes . . . story of sweet complexity, about the people you want to hold on to, and the ones you have to let go.”
      —Time Out New York

All About Lulu hits you right in the place that good music does, with a sharp, heady sweetness.”
     —Time Out Chicago

“A knockout, . . . a debut novel worth getting excited about.”
     —Michael Upchurch, Seattle Times
