ABOUT THE BOOK:

Sometimes you just have to laugh, even when life is a dumpster fire. With WE ARE NEVER MEETING IN REAL LIFE, bitches gotta eat blogger and comedian Samantha Irby turns the serio-comic essay into an art form.  Whether talking about how her difficult childhood has led to a problem in making adult budgets, explaining why she should be the new Bacheloretteshes 35-ish, but could easily pass for 60-somethingdetailing a disastrous pilgrimage-slash-romantic-vacation to Nashville to scatter her estranged fathers ashes, sharing awkward sexual encounters, or dispensing advice on how to navigate friendships with former drinking buddies who are now suburban momshang in there for the Costco lootshes as deft at poking fun at the ghosts of her past self as she is at capturing powerful emotional truths.


Praise for WE ARE NEVER MEETING IN REAL LIFE:

   - Lindy West, author of SHRILL

"WE ARE NEVER MEETING IN REAL LIFE is as close to perfect as an essay collection can get."
