Extract: We Are Never Meeting in Real Life

Read an essay from Samantha Irby’s New York Times Bestselling collection We Are Never Meeting in Real Life.

 

In this painfully funny collection, Samantha Irby captures powerful emotional truths while chronicling the rubbish bin she calls her life. From an ill-fated pilgrimage to Nashville to scatter her estranged father’s ashes to awkward sexual encounters to the world’s first completely honest job application, and more, sometimes you just have to laugh, even when your life is permanently pear-shaped.

‘As close to perfect as an essay collection can get.’ – Roxane Gay
