“Prickly and unsentimental, but never quite hopeless, Attenberg poet laureate of difficult families, captures the relentlessly lonely beauty of being alive.”
Kirkus, starred review

“Dazzling . . . A delectable family saga.”
Publisher’s Weekly, starred review

“An ambitious and utterly delectable novel about families and their secrets that opens up, pleasurably, like a set of nesting dolls."

—Kelly Link, author of Get In Trouble

“Jami Attenberg's work is so deeply attuned to humans and our imperfect attempts to love each other. All This Could Be Yours is populated by Attenberg's pitch-perfect characters; flawed, recognizable people dealing with big topics--death, family, sex, love--and Attenberg handles it all with an expert touch and a keen sense of what, despite all the sadness and secrets, keeps people connected, striving for moments of beauty and tenderness in a dark world.”
—Emma Cline, author of The Girls
