In the “wildly funny” new essay collection by cultural critic, comedian and blogger (bitches gotta eat), Samantha Irby, the author of We Are Never Meeting in Real Life, reflects on (among other topics) life in a Red State, turning 40, LA TV executives, having a spouse who makes her own kombucha and the fakery of lifestyle blogs (vs the reality of  the “slobs on the other side of the screen”).


Curiously relevant and prescient for our current quarantine and pandemic realities, the book that Jia Tolentino calls “stay-up-all-night, miss-your-subway-stop, spit-out-your-beverage funny” shows us how having a sense of humour during the midst of difficulties can be the best way to survive.

Samantha Irby discusses Wow, No Thank You and shows us how to laugh through all the chaos.
