Vogue's Best Books of the Year, 2018 Sunday Times' Best Memoirs of the Year, 2018 A New York Times Book of the Year New Yorker Book of the Year 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'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, holidays 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'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 book by an insightful new literary voice.

Twelve-year-old Ryan Morrison is social kryptonite. He’s much too short and way too intelligent for any kid in his eighth grade to want him for a friend, and his freakishly small size attracts every bully in school. Unable to forge a healthy relationship with his troubled father who scoffs at Ryan’s dream of becoming a famous paleontologist who discovers an unknown species of dinosaur, Ryan feels miserably detached from school and family. Until, that is, the day Ryan unearths a seven-foot silver canister from a river bank and hides it in his bedroom. Of alien technology and design, it opens to reveal a perfectly preserved “fossil”—a 34,000 year-old Ice Age caveman. Incredibly, Bahntouka is very much alive. With Ryan’s help, he adjusts to modern life with curiosity and surprising intelligence. His gift for insight and gentle wisdom helps Ryan’s dysfunctional family begin to bond and heal, even as Bahntouka desperately yearns for his lost wife and baby, entombed in another silver canister somewhere in Oregon or Washington. But when the corrupt Marion County Sheriff and his drug-running accomplices threaten his new family in an escalating life-and-death struggle, Bahntouka reacts with extraordinary courage and sacrifice to rescue them, unleashing man-sized courage in the boy everybody calls Small Fry.
