About the Book

Small Fry: A Memoir

Born on a farm and named in a field by her parents --- artist Chrisann Brennan and Steve Jobs --- Lisa Brennan-Jobs’ childhood unfolded in a rapidly changing Silicon Valley. When she was young, Lisa’s father was a mythical figure who was rarely present in her life. As she grew older, her father took an interest in her, ushering her into a new world of mansions, vacations and private schools. His attention was thrilling, but he could also be cold, critical and unpredictable. When her relationship with her mother grew strained in high school, Lisa decided to move in with her father, hoping he’d become the parent she’d always wanted him to be.

Part portrait of a complex family, part love letter to California in the '70s and '80s, SMALL FRY is a poignant coming-of-age story from one of our most exciting new literary voices.
