"The internet's best friend." - Flare

From the author of the popular newsletter That's What She SaidNobody Cares is a frank, funny personal essay collection about work, failure, friendship, and the messy business of being alive in your twenties and thirties.

As she shares her hard-won insights from screwing up, growing up, and trying to find her own path, Anne T. Donahue's debut book offers all the honesty, laughs, and reassurance of a late-night phone call with your best friend. Whether she's giving a signature pep talk, railing against summer, or describing her own mental health struggles, Anne reminds us that failure is normal, saying no to things is liberating, and that we're all a bunch of beautiful disasters - and she wouldn't have it any other way.

Anne T. Donahue is a writer and person from Cambridge, Ontario. Her work has appeared in publications and websites such as Esquire, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Playboy, Nylon, Flare, and Rookie. She is the host of the podcast Nobody Cares (Except for Me), and has contributed to CBC's q. You can absolutely find her on Twitter and Instag...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a fantastic collection of essays "Some are born anxious, some achieve anxiety, and some have anxiety thrust upon them. I am lucky enough to have been blessed by all three." Woof. This collection of essays is one of the best I've read. Donahue's essay on anxiety is the best. I've never read an essay about anxiety that hits the nail on the head (of My anxiety) as perfect as this one, aptly entitled "Anxiety, You Lying Bitch". "Anxiety, You Lying Bitch" was my favourite essay. But here are my other favourites: - "'Why Don't You Drink?'" - "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love One Direction" (I mean, obviously. Have you met me?) - "Burn It All Down" - "Get to Work" Donahue's voice is friendly and funny and comes across as such in her writing. If you don't follow her on Twitter, you should start. Her tweets are basically a shorter version of her thoughts in her book, except with memes and gifs, and it's just... pure. Stop following people you hate and follow good accounts 2k18.

Editorial Reviews

"I don't know how anyone could read her and not immediately fall in love." - Scaachi Koul, bestselling author of One Day We'll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter"Donahue's tight collection of essays is perfect for anyone struggling to break free from the idea that the world is watching his or her every move. Smart, funny, honest, and as encouraging as an hour-long phone call with a faraway friend." - Booklist"Actually, you will care about Anne T. Donahue's debut personal essay collection. Because its frank, funny observations and insights into life in your twenties and thirties will make you feel seen." -"It's an essay collection you're destined to underline furiously and return to again and again." - Bustle"Donahue's messiness is an asset, of course. Her essays about the less photogenic moments of her life contain their own sort of beauty, the kind that comes from failing and persevering. From breaking down her anxiety disorder to getting in touch with helpful and well-deserved female rage, Donahue is as inspiring as she is droll." - Vulture
