‘The second book of essays from this frank and madly funny blogger … A side-splitting polemicist for the most awful situations.’ - Janet Maslin, The New York Times, Summer Reading Pick
‘From the blogger behind Bitches Gotta Eat comes a seriocomic essay collection that will have you crying from laughter and then just crying. A boisterous medley of awkward sex, pop culture obsession and coming-of-age.’ - Oprah.com
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 Bachelorette - she's ‘35-ish, but could easily pass for 60-something’ - detailing a disastrous pilgrimage-slash-romantic-vacation to Nashville to scatter her estranged father's ashes, sharing awkward sexual encounters, or dispensing advice on how to navigate friendships with former drinking buddies who are now 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.
Samantha Irby writes a blog called 'bitches gotta eat.'
