The hilarious New York Times bestselling literary essay collection from Sloane Crosley, the author of I Was Told There’d Be Cake and The Clasp.

Sloane Crosley, the brilliantly funny “fountain of observations” (Boston Globe), now takes readers from a bear-infested wedding in Alaska to a run-in with clowns in Portugal in a new collection of essays about the messiest and most unexpected dilemmas life has to offer.

“How sure-footed and observant Sloane Crosley is. How perfectly, relentlessly funny.” — David Sedaris


“Wonderful and entertaining.” — USA Today

“Undeniably funny… Crosley’s work speaks volumes to her generation.” — San Francisco Chronicle

“Charming… Crosley has an original spark… [She] is like a tap dancer, lighthearted and showmanlike… capable of surprising you with the reserves of emotion and keen social observation that motivate the performance.” — The New York Times Book Review

“Crosley writes with such buoyancy. But [she]… shows a depth that’s every bit as enjoyable as the full-on belly laughs.” — Entertainment Weekly
