Booklist Reviews 2017 April #2

In her new book of essays, Irby, author of the blog bitches gotta eat and a previous essay collection, Meaty (2013), is once again the inimitably candid, über-confessional friend readers will happily spend a few hundred pages with. Master of both in-your-face jokes and clever, sneaking humor, Irby fills out her application to star on The Bachelorette, the "show where a woman is surrounded by 25 slabs of brisket clamoring to drink her dirty bathwater." She relays a bathroom emergency on the side of a gridlocked highway. She and a friend escape relatively unscathed from a Civil War reenactment in the Chicago suburbs. Writing about topics like growing up "poor, anxious, and unhappy," turning 18 at the same time her wayward father died, dealing with depression ("Do black girls even get to be depressed?"), figuring out how exactly one is supposed to deal with money, or the special challenge of understanding a loving relationship after so many bad ones, Irby's brilliant blend of honesty and humor will have readers' tears streaming for all kinds of reasons.
