The Audible editors have fallen in love with Lisa Brennan-Jobs's memoir. Here's why.

"As someone who was raised by a single mother around the same time—West Coast, the salads they eat—all that stuff really brings me to that time and place that’s familiar to me, and makes me feel less alone. The struggles she had in life were familiar to me, and I often had to stop myself and go, 'oh yeah, her dad is Steve Jobs.'"—Courtney, Audible editor

"Memoirs are my jam! I can be pretty picky about memoirs, and this just, it took the words out of my mouth, it took my breath away, it showed me new depths to memoir that I didn’t even know existed. It’s a really special memoir—and we hope you’ll enjoy it, and that it will speak to you as much as it did to us."—Rachel, Audible editor

"Narrator Eileen Stevens is wonderful. There are very few narrators who really are able to strike that tone where she’s embodying this person, she’s embodying her story in a way that feels—I know we like this word a lot, but—it’s authentic. It feels real."—Abby, Audible editor

Publisher's summary

A frank, smart, and captivating memoir by the daughter of Apple founder Steve Jobs

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.

Small Fry is Lisa Brennan-Jobs' 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 '70s and '80s, Small Fry is an enthralling audiobook by an insightful new literary voice.

Editor's Pick

Think Steve Jobs was a tough boss? Now imagine him as your dad.
"Apple founder Steve Jobs had a famously difficult personality, and it turns out this was never more true than in his relationship with his daughter, Lisa Brennan-Jobs. He wouldn’t even admit he was her father in the beginning, and when he finally did, it came with all kinds of strings attached. Lisa’s gorgeous memoir gave me goosebumps as she described what it’s like to love and seek approval from one of the world’s most notoriously withholding personalities."
