The woman behind "Bitchesgottaeat.com" shares stories of her life from a failed "Bachelorette" application and awkward sexual encounters to a romantic vacation and ill-fated pilgrimage to scatter her estranged father's ashes in Nashville.

“The second book of essays from this frank and madly funny blogger.... A sidesplitting polemicist for the most awful situations.”—The New York Times, Summer Reading Pick



Sometimes you just have to laugh, even when life is a dumpster fire.



With We Are Never Meeting in Real Life., “bitches gotta eat” blogger and comedian Samantha Irby turns the serio-comic essay into an art form. Whether talking about how her difficult childhood has led to a problem in making “adult” budgets, explaining why she should be the new Bachelorette—she's "35-ish, but could easily pass for 60-something"—detailing a disastrous pilgrimage-slash-romantic-vacation to Nashville to scatter her estranged father's ashes, sharing awkward sexual encounters, or dispensing advice on how to navigate friendships with former drinking buddies who are now suburban moms—hang in there for the Costco loot—she’s as deft at poking fun at the ghosts of her past self as she is at capturing powerful emotional truths.

Does not rate a star from me. Apparently a sense of humor is like the sense of taste, in the literal or physical form, it is very personal. I've never heard of this 'comedian' & my sense of humor must be non-existent if this is considered comedy. Absolute garbage is the least offensive term I can place on this trash.
