The No 1 New York Times bestselling essayist is back, on point, and ready to be the friend in print we all look forward to spending a little more time with.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wow, No Thank You

'Brilliant, hilarious and perspicacious' - Elizabeth Day
'SO funny.' - sara Pascoe
'Wildly, seditiously funny.' - New York Times
'Sam Irby is the king of sparkling misanthropy and tender, loving dread.' - Jia Tolentino

This is not an advice book. Samantha Irby doesn't know anything. After fleeing Chicago to quarantine at home in Michigan, Irby finds herself bleaching groceries and wondering if her upper lip hairs are visible on Zoom. Her career reaches new heights: she gets to work with the iconic ladies of Sex and the City - her dream! - but behind the new-found glam, Irby is just trying to keep her life together. Our friend in print is back, on point, and ready to take us with her, from adopting Abe (her scrawny, watery-eyed firstborn dog) to her favourite, extremely specific porn searches (including two old nuns).
