More about Tenemental by Vikki Warner

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. 

Feminist Press

“Refreshingly original reading.” Kirkus Reviews

“Heartfelt and fascinating.” Booklist

“A thoughtful meditation on communal living and urban identity. . . . Quirky and fun.” The Providence Monthly
