Named a New York Times and New Yorker Top 10 Book of 2018, Small Fry is the story of Lisa Brennan-Jobs’ childhood, as the daughter of Chrisann Brennan and Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple. She chronicles her early years spent bouncing between her emotional, at times unstable mother, and her distant, unpredictable father.
Brennan-Jobs’ critically acclaimed memoir details not only the complex relationship between Steve Jobs and his daughter, but it also provides a nostalgic look at growing up in California in the 1980s.
