“I don’t know what an attractive personality is. I like charisma and charm, but what I really need to find is someone who doesn’t get on my nerves but is also minimally annoyed by all the irritating things about me.”

This book is something that’s always caught my eye when I’m in Indigo or other bookstores. I mean, look at the cover! It’s bright yellow and has a cute cat on it. I decided to finally pick this up since I realized Irby’s next book is coming out soon!

In We Are Never Meeting in Real Life, candidly talks about everything from how her difficult childhood led to a problem in making “adult” budgets; explaining why she should be the new Bachelorette; detailing a disastrous pilgrimage to Nashville to scatter her estranged father’s ashes; sharing awkward sexual encounters; and more.

Irby just wants everyone to know that she’s more than up for the opportunity to poke fun at the ghosts of her past self. But she’s also equally capable of capturing powerful emotional truths in these hilarious and relatable essays.
