Publisher's Summary

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, finding 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.

What the Critics Say

“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)

“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.” (Seattle Times)

    "A good listen"

    I like books that have good character development - you get background, what has happened to cause the characters to look, act, sound, behave as they do. This book gives you all that. You get to know the story of William Miller, his father, his stepmother, and - most of all - his stepsister Lulu who comes into his life and becomes the most important person in his world. It is a beautiful love story, a story of growing up and giving another person complete control over your happiness or sadness. The ending is a little predictable but good nontheless. Highly recommend.
