Adventures of a Reluctant Landlady

"Refreshingly original reading." —Kirkus Reviews

Detouring from the traditional timeline of marriage-kids-house, twenty-six-year-old Vikki Warner skips straight to home ownership and buys a run-down three-story house in Providence, Rhode Island. Suddenly, she's responsible for a rotating cast of colorful tenants, and adulthood means exploding plumbing, gentrification, and navigating the 2008 market crash with no blueprint. Told with grit and good humor, this debut memoir is a candid exploration into how sharing space profoundly reshapes our lives and forces us to grow into ourselves.
