Slouching Toward Adulthood
by Sally Koslow
The cover art was cute. The subtitle, “Observations from the Not-So-Empty Nest” made me grin. The first page made me giggle. So I brought it home from the library, little realizing that I was about to embark on strange seas indeed. The kids, or as Koslow painfully calls them, adultescents, in this book are all college-educated. Most are world travelers. I found it hard to work up any empathy, let alone sympathy, for any of the characters in this book. Just not my kind of thing, I guess.
