    Samantha Irby is truly the queen of the humor essay who makes you laugh, laugh, laugh, and feel fully not crazy for being the way that you are. Funny, vulnerable, and spectacularly modern, Irby’s writing makes you giggle by yourself without feeling alone.

    I’m obsessed with this book and give it to everyone I know. It makes you feel like you can do, write, and create anything while behaving in any way you please. Did you know many of the greatest thinkers of our time wrote while eating breakfast in bed or getting drunk in the bath? As I tell myself every morning in the mirror, you are not uniquely fucked. 😊

    I read this book on a plane and it fucked me uuuup. It is truly a gorgeous gut-punch. All my gals (of all genders) must read this beautiful memoir written for all of us who just want, as Levy puts it, everything.

    Obviously, there’s nothing more obnoxious than laughing aloud while reading a book on the subway (we get it, you’re a clever little bitch!!!) but I could not help myself when I found this absolutely hellish and hilarious memoir. I’m fully addicted to Lockwood’s beautiful, twisted, and poetic brain.

    Sure, I’m recommending this book because I have a poem in it, but so do so many other brilliant writers whose work kept me cozy during the hell that was 2020 and also, say it with me, 2021. Read this and feel like you’re getting that big hug we all so desperately need.

    Oh my GOD, I just finished this in one day and couldn’t put it down. This memoir is about the family we have, the family we choose, and what to do with all our wanting when those things don’t align. So raw, heartbreaking, poetic.

    Batuman’s beautiful novel centers a young, painful romance around academia, travel, and emailing—my personal holy trinity of horniness.

    I’ve j’adored Chelsea Martin since I read her novella, Mickey, and was so thrilled when I got my hands on a copy of her essays. Always funny and painfully modern.
