Publisher's Summary

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.

The perfect balance of humour and pathos

I never wanted this book to end. There were several legitimate spit takes as I listened (coffee is my constant listening companion) and so many places where I absolutely connected with the anecdotes and found myself thinking "me too!" Thank God this woman and her perfect deadpan delivery exist and that she wrote this wonderful book. I will read or listen to anything she writes.
