Booksmith is thrilled to host Samantha Irby, in town to read from her beloved first collection of essays — and the basis for the upcoming FX Studios series — Meaty! Please join us.

Samantha Irby exploded onto the printed page with this debut collection of essays about trying to laugh her way through failed relationships, taco feasts, bouts with Crohn's disease, and more. Every essay is crafted with the same scathing wit and poignant candor thousands of loyal readers have come to expect from visiting her notoriously hilarious blog,

— «Raunchy, funny and vivid...Those faint of heart beware...strap in and get ready for a roller-coaster ride to remember.» — Kirkus

«Amazingly crass, defiant, witty, terrifying, and wondrous...[Irby] cuts the bawdy, wickedly funny pieces with some truly poignant palate cleansers...Irby's voice is raw, gripping, and ...Delicious.» — Booklist

«Her candor in style and subject matter--mostly sex, dating, and the general lousiness of men--has earned Samantha Irby a cult following… Honesty mixed with self-deprecating humor is what propels reader.» — Time Out Chicago

— Samantha Irby writes a blog called bitches gotta eat and is the author of the essay collections Meaty and the New York Times Bestseller We Are Never Meeting in Real Life.
