An Underachiever's Diary: A Novel

An Underachiever's Diary: A Novel Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meet William, a devout underachiever. He enters life as the firstborn of identical twin boys. It is the last time he will beat his overachieving brother Clive, or anyone else for that matter, at anything.

This is William’s manifesto for the underachiever. It is the chronicle of a lifetime of failure–part diary and part handbook for self-defeat. At once corrosively funny and surprisingly tender, An Underachiever’s Diary is a classic tale of perverse perseverance.

Synopsis:

Perpetually overshadowed by his perfectionist identical twin, William devoutly clings to his mediocre status, which he holds up against the entire world with well-practiced apathy. Reprint.

Synopsis:

Benjamin Anastas is the author of The Faithful Narrative of a Pastor's Disappearance. His writing has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, The Paris Review, Men's Vogue, and GQ.
