Title: Wow, No Thank You

Author: Samantha Irby

Publisher: Faber & Faber

The Blurb

Staring down the barrel of her fortieth year, Samantha Irby is confronting the ways her life has changed since the days she could work a full 11 hour shift on 4 hours of sleep, change her shoes and put mascara on in the back of a moving cab and go from drinks to dinner to the club without a second thought. Recently, things are more ‘Girls Gone Mild.’ In¬†Wow, No Thank You¬†Irby discusses the actual nightmare of living in a rural idyll, weighs in on body negativity (loving yourself is a full-time job with shitty benefits) and poses the essential question: Sure sex is fun but have you ever googled a popular meme?

The Review

After having read several Samantha Irby books I can safely say I am lukewarm to her as a writer. I don’t necessarily think her books are life changing for me but I have enjoyed parts of her books. I don’t think I will be first in line to pick up her next one but it if was on offer on Kindle I might purchase it.

Wow, No Thank You by Samantha Irby is available now.
