Quietly Hostile

"Go to bed earlier? But what about my shows?" ~ pg. 9

My braids were falling out of my loose bun from nodding and laughing so hard at this new essay collection from Samantha Irby titled Quietly Hostile. Her successful career has only enhanced her comedy and newfound glam. Just like all of us, Sam is just trying to keep her life together. Making fun of herself is not only relatable but also hilarious!

Sam Irby deserves all the flowers. She is writing for television, publishing her 4th essay collection written mostly during the pandemic. Ah, the early days of working remotely on Zoom. The essays can be read in any order and include walking the red carpet with "Sex and The City" cast, diarrhea details, how to interact with teenagers, fridge shelf compatibility, and more random shit. The essay I related to the most was trying to soak off gel polish with acetone (IYKYK). 

You want a good laugh? Pre-order Quietly Hostile: Essays and anticipate the giggles it will bring.

Happy Early Pub Day, Sam Irby! Quietly Hostile: Essays will be available Tuesday, May 16.
