Publisher's Summary

Smart, edgy, hilarious, and unabashedly raunchy New York Times best-selling author Samantha Irby explodes in her uproarious first collection of essays.
Irby laughs her way through tragicomic mishaps, neuroses, and taboos as she struggles through adulthood: chin hairs, depression, bad sex, failed relationships, masturbation, taco feasts, inflammatory bowel disease, and more. Updated with her favorite Instagramable, couch-friendly recipes, this much-beloved romp is treat for anyone in dire need of Irby's infamous, scathing wit, and poignant candor.

Hilariously honest

If you could sum up Meaty in three words, what would they be?

Hilarious, vulnerable, refelctive

What did you like best about this story?

Samantha Irby is brazenly unafraid to "go there". She shares harrowing moments of her life with a critical rawness but somehow still manages to make everything laugh-out-loud funny.

What about Samantha Irby’s performance did you like?

This is my second Samantha Irby audio and no one other then Sam should ever be allowed to perform her books.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I definitely made a few wrong turns while listening to this audiobook in my car because I was too distracted from laughing.

Samantha Irby is a gift

Anything she writes is gold, but her narration takes it to another level. You'll listen to this book (and anything else she decides to recite) no less than five times.
