We Are Never Meeting in Real Life

by Samantha Irby


Outrageously hilarious essays from the blogger behind Bitches Gotta Eat.

'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.
