Read full description of the books Alles Über Lulu: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 step-mother, and his irrepressible crush on his new step-sister, 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, 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.

Praise for All About Lulu:
"All About Lulu is a stunner--viciously funny and deeply felt."
-Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"A knockout! All About Lulu is a debut worth getting excited about."
-Michael Upchurch, Seattle Times
"Evison’s debut novel glows with evocative details and unforgettable scenes . . .a 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
"With high wit and a pitch-perfect ear for the comic mundanity of everyday speech, All About Lulu earns its moments of painful, pure tenderness. At times it hits you right in the place that good music does, with a sharp, heady sweetness."
-Time Out Chicago
"An auspicious debut for a writer with equal parts heart and reckless verve."
