“This book is both hilarious and beautiful. It captures the essence of mischief.” — Russell Brand
“Each paragraph is a double shot, like sharing a drink with a friend.” — Caitlin Moran
Joel Golby, known for his witty observations and candid self-reflection in his writing for Vice and The Guardian, has amassed a devoted following. Now, in his debut book, he presents a searing collection of fresh essays, including the uproariously funny viral sensation “Insights You Only Grasp When Both Your Parents Are Deceased.” Within these pages, Golby takes us on a journey to Saudi Arabia, where he finds himself bewildered at a camel pageant; he imparts a survival guide to navigate the perplexities of modern dinner parties (such as how to politely escape the moment an adult board game is introduced); and he repeatedly faces off against a capricious and unsympathetic subspecies of Londoners: landlords.
Amidst all the misfortune and absurdity, Golby reminds us that even in the harshest situations, there is always a gentle lesson waiting to be discovered. This book is a witty companion for those who tend to overshare, overthink, or have ever experienced a sense of being adrift or bewildered–and who want to find humor in it all.
