Description

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' 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, vacations, 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' 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 '70s and '80s, Small Fry is an enthralling audiobook by an insightful new literary voice.

A beautiful, poignant, thoughtful and devastating memoir

I listened to this much of the time with my mouth wide open. Agape at Lisa's telling of brutal, heartbreaking tales of her upbringing, filled with beautiful prose. She has uncannily observed her own life and put it in a story that will teach you about growth, love and all of its complexity. The perspective of a child thirsting for attention and love and her observations of the adults are both beautifully written and thought provoking. I was moved by this book very deeply.

Most honest look at Steve Jobs I have read.

Lisa portrays both of her parents as only a child could. Both of her parents are incredibly flawed and at times I found myself angry at them both. However, by the end she had made peace and the reader does as well. I felt sorry for Steve most of all. He missed it and he regretted it.

Lisa Brennan-Jobs is a survivor

One of the best books I have read. Lisa has a way of absorbing you in her story. I felt as if I was right beside her experiencing the trauma in her life. Few people could tolerate the behavior of the adults in her inner circle. Lisa has become a beautiful woman, wise beyond her years and appears to have such a peaceful and forgiving heart. I hope she continues to write, she's an excellent writer and processes a talent to pull you into her life while reading her book. She is a daughter most of us would be proud to have.

You feel as though you are there.

The author has a beautiful way of describing her memories. She crafts her words in such a way that you feel you are there.

She comes across very authentic. Not only does she share her perspective of her father, but all of the adults in her life. She doesn’t shy away from her own embarrassing moments either.

This book is very much about every child brought up during this same time period with a single mother. There are many parallels to my own childhood. Brilliantly written!

Simply Awesome

I’ve read and listened to a lot of books ... This one is one of my favorites. Beautifully written, touching and beautiful. I never thought of Steve as bad just as a human and Lisa as a kid growing through the trials and tribulations of growing up. Thank you for sharping your staring with us Lisa. I have two kids I don’t live with and live far apart from... touched me so deeply.

Truly an amazing book. Simply awesome! Thank you!

Well done

I admit I was interested in this book because of it being by Steve Jobs daughter. I was in for a surprise. Lisa’s “coming of age” story is indeed very interesting, but more than that, it was lived and revealed by a very perceptive, intelligent person and very good writer.
As far as Steve’s portrayal, yes, his well- known, incomprehensibly difficult side is on display, but also, and unexpectedly, a different , better side that I don’t think he’s gotten much, if any credit for publicly.
Well deserved 5 stars for the author and narrator.

Good writing won’t save you from boredom

Adolescent angst and cliches make the daughter of Steve Jobs seem unaccountably ordinary — maybe that is the point? But if so, she needs an editor. Gave up with three hours to go...

Beautifully Lyrical Prose...Albeit a Bit Entitled

Lisa Brennan-Jobs’s memoir is accomplished in its prose, symbolism, and sentiment. Consequently, while I thoroughly believe she had an emotionally tumultuous childhood - her story is often difficult to connect to the reader’s experience. The narrator comes off as often spoiled, completely entitled, and out-of-touch, much like the father she often maligns.

No Holds Barred

I loved that Lisa didn't sugar coat anything in this memoir about her famous dad. While some people are tempted to not speak ill of people once they have passed, she was refreshingly candid. Parent-child relationships are complicated even for famous folks. Good read.
