Synopses & Reviews
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.
"Wonderful and entertaining." USA Today
"Undeniably funny...Crosley's work speaks volumes to her generation." San Francisco Chronicle
"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
"Crosley writes with such buoyancy. But [she]...shows a depth that's every bit as enjoyable as the full-on belly laughs." Entertainment Weekly
