by Samantha Irby - £9.99 Faber & Faber (2020)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780571359264 | ISBN 10: 0571359264
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 stay-up-all-night, miss-your-subway-stop, spit-out-your-beverage funny; she's the king of sparkling misanthropy and tender, loving dread."
