By the popular Vice contributor, a collection of full-throated appreciations, withering assessments, and hard-won lessons.

Joel Golby's columns for Vice have been read by millions, offering a voice that's distinctive both for its wry observation and its naked self-reflection. Now, with his first book, he presents a collection of blistering and original new essays. In it, he travels to Saudi Arabia, where he acts as a perplexed bystander to a sort of Westminster Dog Show--for camels. He examines his relationship with alcohol, an on-and-off-again struggle he thinks of as running alongside the wagon. And he gets pitted head to head, again and again, with an unpredictable, unpitying subspecies of Londoner: the landlord.

Through it all, he shows that no matter how cruel the misfortune, how absurd the circumstance, there's always the soft punch of a lesson tucked within. Featuring new and newly expanded essays--including the achingly funny viral hit "Things You Only Know When Both Your Parents Are Dead"--it is a book for anyone who has ever felt lost and confused, and who wants to have a good laugh about it.



“Seeing the byline ’Joel Golby’ means you’re about to ungraciously snort with laughter in a public place. Golby is sharper at dissecting the madness of 21st century online existence than any other writer. Every paragraph is like doing a shot with a friend. A double.”
Caitlin MoranNew York Times bestselling author of How to Be a Woman and How to Be Famous

“This is a funny and beautiful book. What a little bastard.”
Russell BrandNew York Times bestselling author of My Booky Wook and Recovery

“Joel Golby is my favorite pop culture-obsessed nihilist…You’ll laugh, cry and probably be a bit weirded out.”
Sharon Horgan, co-creator of Catastrophe

“A writer who can be funny and offhandedly profound at the same time…[Golby] sometimes feels like a kindred spirit to David Sedaris, but younger and more biting.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Golby, a British staff writer for Vice, moves between dark wit and even darker emotion, often in the course of a single sentence…Consistently entertaining.”
