We present the debut essay collection by Chicago writer and performer, Samantha Irby, creator of bitchesgotteat.com.
Selected by Barnes & Noble for their Holiday '13 Discover Great New Writers Program.
“Her candor in style and subject matter—mostly sex, dating and the general lousiness of men—has earned Samantha Irby a cult following… Honesty mixed with self-deprecating humor is what propels readers.” – Timeout Chicago
“The best thing to happen to passionate admirers since binoculars. Samantha Irby is a stunted adolescent who spends her free time drinking fancy beer, eating expensive macaroons and writing about smart ladies, dumb dudes, music, tacos and diarrhea.” – The Chicago Sun-Times
Samantha Irby explodes onto the page in her debut collection of brand-new essays about being a complete dummy trying to laugh her way through her ridiculous life of failed relationships, taco feasts, bouts with Crohn's Disease, & more, all told with the same scathing wit & poignant candor long-time readers have come to expect from her notoriously hilarious blog, bitchesgottaeat.com.
In addition to co-hosting The Sunday Night Sex Show, a sex-positive live lit show, and Guts & Glory, a reading series featuring essayists, Samantha has performed all over Chicago. She opened for Baratunde Thurston during his "How to Be Black" tour. She has been profiled in the Chicago Sun-Times as well as in Time Out Chicago, and her work has appeared on The Rumpus and Jezebel. Samantha and partner Ian Belknap write a comedy advice blog at irbyandian.com.
