THE NUMBER ONE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
‘Irby might be our great bard of quarantine.’ New York Times
‘SO funny. Samantha Irby makes staying in feel like like a luxury, and reminds you that going out is actually quite annoying. I laughed out loud so much reading this — I honestly couldn’t be more in awe of her.’ Sara Pascoe
Staring down the barrel of her fortieth year, Samantha Irby is confronting the ways her life has changed since the days she could work a full 11 hour shift on 4 hours of sleep, change her shoes and put mascara on in the back of a moving cab and go from drinks to dinner to the club without a second thought. Recently, things are more ‘Girls Gone Mild.’ In Wow, No Thank You Irby discusses the actual nightmare of living in a rural idyll, weighs in on body negativity (loving yourself is a full-time job with shitty benefits) and poses the essential question: Sure sex is fun but have you ever googled a popular meme?
‘Samantha Irby is the king of sparkling misanthropy and tender, loving dread.’ Jia Tolentino
‘A laugh. A fart. A snort. Or some combination thereof. Be prepared to totally lose control of the noises that come out of your body while reading the latest essay collection from humor writer Samantha Irby.’ Bustle
‘The only writer who can make me laugh with abandon in public… Her signature irreverence is intact, of course, but it can’t mask the heart she leaves bleeding on the page.’ Elle
‘Samantha Irby is hilarious… Nothing is off limits and I love it.’ Candice Carty-Williams
Irby’s literary takes on sex, family, and the body are unique in their comedic resonance and full gut-punch power.
Irby's essays are by turns eye-wateringly hilarious and down-to-earth and authentic, delivering emotional punches that tell us about what it is to be human. An utterly talented and wickedly funny writer who deserves every success.
[A] disgusting, perfect, and LOL must read.
