Chicago Book Launch: MEATY by Samantha Irby
Women & Children First is thrilled to host the Chicago launch celebration for MEATY by Samantha Irby. This reissue of Irby's first essay collection is updated with new content and, arguably, the best cover design of the year.

In MEATY, Irby laughs her way through tragicomic mishaps, neuroses, and taboos as she struggles through adulthood: chin hairs, depression, bad sex, failed relationships, masturbation, taco feasts, inflammatory bowel disease and more. Updated with her favorite Instagramable, couch-friendly recipes, this much-beloved romp is treat for anyone in dire need of Irbys infamous, scathing wit and poignant candor.

Samantha Irby is the author of the New York Times bestseller WE ARE NEVER MEETING IN REAL LIFE and writes a blog called bitches gotta eat.

Praise for MEATY

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

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

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.
