"Beloved writer Samantha Irby has returned to the printed page for her much-anticipated, sidesplitting fourth book following her 2020 breakout, Wow, no thank you, a Vintage Books Original. The success of Irby's career has taken her to new heights. She fields calls with job offers from Hollywood and walks the red carpet with the iconic ladies of Sex and the City. Finally, she has made it. But, behind all that new-found glam, Irby is just trying to keep her life together as she always had. Her teeth are poisoning her from inside her mouth, and her diarrhea is back. She gets turned away from a restaurant for wearing ugly clothes, she goes to therapy and tries out Lexapro, gets healed with Reiki, explores the power of crystals, and becomes addicted to QVC. Making light of herself as she takes us on an outrageously funny tour of all the details that make up a true portrait of her life, Irby is once again the relatable, uproarious tonic we all need"--… (més)

Funny, nasty, relatable, too relatable, until it's deep in kink that is utterly unrelatable. First read by this author and I think she's worth more reading. ( )

(52) Not my thing. A collection of umm .. I guess essays is a kind term. Really just self-indulgent riffs on whatever happens to roll through the author's mind. Like expounding on sex in the city episodes, tips for being a good party guest, ways to talk to teenagers, taking a dump in public - you get the drift. Inane, repetitive, self-deprecating, juvenile - occasionally funny, but mostly cringe-worthy. Meaning I cringe for the author who puts herself out there. I mean all the way out there.

I would hope she actually does more than lounge around watching Netflix and eating snack food all day. She writes about her slovenly life for which she seems alternatively horrified of and equally ready to defend and show-off. I guess there is only so many times you can be reminded that a person is low-class before you devalue what they are saying and feel disgust for them. While I love sharp and honest humor, I require more subtlety to truly be amused.

I had to push myself to finish though did occasionally laugh. I would definitely not read her other books despite our similarities in age. Too crude and pathetic for me. I purposely read to escape the banal musings of everyday drudgery, not to roll around in them. ( )

Samantha Irby talks about a lot of embarassing stuff, but once I got over being a bit shocked I found that I identified with her a lot. That's what makes her so funny, she brings up stuff you don't want to think about, and the shock is refreshing. ( )

Not my favorite of hers, and I've read all 4.

I don't listen to the Dave Matthews Band, so that chapter was a bust.

I' m not a fan of Sex and the City, so that chapter was also a bust. But I'm happy for Samantha that she is a writer on that show.

A little bit more poop stories than I was comfortable with, but that's on me.

I will still read anything she writes, because she is hilarious. ( )

audiobook (9.5hrs, read by the author) - some essays are funnier than others, but you can always skip ahead if you don't need to know all of the many dozens of episodes of all the seasons of Sex and the City that could be changed for better/worse. I find the author's extreme candor refreshing and have enjoyed her other books as well, but if you are at ALL offended by toilet matters, you probably wouldn't care for this author with Crohn's syndrome diarrhea and perimenopausal incontinence.
