ABOUT WE ARE NEVER MEETING IN REAL LIFE
From the author of Meaty and creator of the blog Bitches Gotta Eat comes a smart, edgy, hilarious, and unabashedly raunchy collection of essays about navigating new relationships, growing older, and jobs that get in the way of one’s television habit.
Sometimes you just have to laugh, even when life is a dumpster fire. With We Are Never Meeting in Real Life., blogger and comedian Samantha Irby turns the serio-comic essay into an artform. Whether talking about how her difficult childhood has led to a problem in making “adult” budgets, explaining why she should be the new Bachelorette (she’s “35-ish, but could easily pass for 60-something”), detailing a disastrous trip-slash-romantic-vacation to Nashville to scatter her estranged father’s ashes, sharing an awkward sexual encounter, or dispensing advice on how to navigate friendships with former drinking buddies who are now new suburban moms (hang in there for the Costco loot), she’s as deft at poking fun at the ghosts of her past self as she is at capturing powerful emotional truths.
