Event Details

Lisa Brennan-Jobs, daughter of Apple founder Steve Jobs, discusses and signs her entrancing memoir, Small Fry.

Small Fry, A New York Times and New Yorker top 10 book of the year, is Lisa Brennan-Job’s poignant story of a childhood spent between two imperfect but extraordinary homes. Scrappy, wise and funny, young Lisa is an unforgettable guide through her parents’ fascinating and disparate worlds. Part portrait of a complex family, part love letter to California in the seventies and eighties. Small Fry is an enthralling coming of age story from one of the most exciting new literary voices.

Lisa’s 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, artist Chrisann Brennan, 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.

“Beautiful, literary, and devastating.”—New York Times Book Review , Mesmerizing, discomfiting reading… A book of no small literary skill.”—New Yorker
