What's so great about positivity? The only place to go is down. Ariel Leve is here to tell us why we're all doomed .
Hypochondriac, neurotic, habitual sweater-of-the-small-stuff, Cassandra is one of life's losers. She counts it a good day if she manages to get out of bed. If someone should ask: what's the worst thing that can happen? She has a ready-made list and lives in permanent fear of what's to come. But at least, as a pessimist, she's fully prepared for any eventuality: people who see the glass half full are only a spill away from disappointment.
Whether you've been dumped by the love of your life, lost your job, said the wrong thing at a party, or forgotten to have children, Cassandra is there to remind you that it could be worse . you could be her.
