Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The hilarious New York Times bestseller from the author of I Was Told There'd Be Cake.

Sloane Crosley, the brilliantly funny "fountain of observations" (Boston Globe), now takes readers from a bear-infested wedding in Alaska to a run-in with clowns in Portugal in a new collection of essays about the messiest and most unexpected dilemmas life has to offer.

Review:

"Wonderful and entertaining." USA Today

Review:

"Undeniably funny...Crosley's work speaks volumes to her generation." San Francisco Chronicle

Review:

"Charming...Crosley has an original spark....[She] is like a tap dancer, lighthearted and showmanlike...capable of surprising you with the reserves of emotion and keen social observation that motivate the performance." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Crosley writes with such buoyancy. But [she]...shows a depth that's every bit as enjoyable as the full-on belly laughs." Entertainment Weekly
