Blogger Samantha Irby has been through a lot. Her father hit her for washing dishes incorrectly, her mother was in a nursing home by the time she was fifteen, and both of them were dead by the time she reached adulthood. She has been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, infertility, arthritis, depression, and anxiety. She also has the social disadvantages of being fat, black, and attracted to other women.
But her series of essays—including ones about failed relationships, a demonic cat, mishaps at the animal shelter where she worked for fourteen years, a diarrhea incident on the side of a highway, her obsessions with The Bachelorette and remaining indoors at all costs, and the misadventure that was dumping her dad’s ashes in a Tennessee river—are full of irreverent jokes, swearing, and general hilarity.
