About the Book

'I cannot remember the last time I was so moved by a book. We Are Never Meeting in Real Life is as close to perfect as an essay collection can get.' — Roxane Gay, New York Times bestselling author of Difficult Women and Bad Feminist

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.
