This week on Up Close, two memoirs that look at what it means to be an adult, from nearly opposite ends.
First, comedian, actor and writer Annabelle Gurwitch talks about the complications of being in the “sandwich generation” — having to take care of teenage children and elderly parents at the same time. Her new memoir is I See You Made an Effort: Compliments, Indignities, and Survival Stories from the Edge of 50.
Then, author Joanna Rakoff takes us back 20 years to when she was just setting out on a career. She recalls her curious experiences working for J.D. Salinger’s publishing company, and the trials and tribulations of becoming an adult in the 1990s, in her memoir, My Salinger Year.
