Samantha Irby's humorous essays are raw, honest and very human. Plenty of laugh out loud moments and a very rounded portrait of a woman who probably would be awkward around you if you met "in real life".

— Len, Chicago ORD


*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.
