*A New York Times Bestseller*

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.

Some laugh out loud moments, but overall I felt the author was trying to get everyone to feel sorry for her.

Great title. Great cover. HUGE disappointment.

This is THE most hilarious book I have read lately. Samantha Irby is a comedic mastermind and an excellent essayist. There's sex, cats, bodily functions, embarrassing moments, and more! Along with being silent-shake-laughing funny, however, it is also incredibly honest and authentic as Irby tackles subjects like her Crohn's disease, depression, and experiences of racial microaggressions. I cannot wait to see what Irby brings us next.
