Kelly Williams Brown new book, “Adulting: How to Become a Grown-up in 468 Easy (ish) Steps” is meant to help her peers navigate the rocky shoals of maturity, to guide those 20-somethings who are just figuring out that radio silence is not an acceptable breakup technique, and food does not spontaneously manifest itself in the refrigerator.
“One of the most jolting days of adulthood comes the first time you run out of toilet paper,” Ms. Brown said. “Toilet paper, up until this point, always just existed.”
The idea for “Adulting” (which has just been optioned for television by J. J. Abrams, executive producer of the “Lost” series) was refined when Ms. Brown worked as a reporter for the Statesman Journal in Salem, Ore., consulting her Facebook friends for a column about what skills or possessions they should have by the age of 30.
