About the Author

Raven Smith has been 32 for several years and lives in London with his husband and cat. The former Vogue and Sunday Times columnist is quoted by many as the funniest person on Instagram, which does nothing to minimise his ego. This is his first book.


'The unofficial spokesperson of the modern millennial'

'Funny, interrogating, refreshingly self-aware and irresistibly readable: Raven Smith has written a hilarious, relatable guide to the contradictions and complications of modern life'

'It's rare a writer is as funny in their prose as they are in their social media. But Raven is that rare author who is somehow even better, as he tartly explores pop culture and its influence on his inner life. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll wonder if you're really just another millennial a**hole on this guided tour of Raven's beautiful, singular and deeply hilarious mind.'

'Raven Smith's writing is as current as it is biting!'
Candice Carty-Williams

Fresh, funny and fabulous!'

'Raven Smith is rollickingly good fun and Britain's sassiest social commentator. Trivial Pursuits is a linguistic acid trip and a showcase of his ability to shape even the most useless piece of information into something riveting.'

'It's unlike anything I've ever read...in a good way! I'm laughing out loud, wincing in recognition and shaking my head in wonderment about some of the batshit metaphors that shouldn't work but do!' ELIZABETH DAY

'It's hilarious. The funny stuff made me do small wheezes and the honest stuff made me wish I could write so boldly. The chapter on long term partnerships made me feel strangely like I wanted to go and hug my sleeping husband and I reached the end furious that there wasn't more to come...I feel like he wrote it from inside my brain but only if my brain was cleverer and more articulate.'

Smith is a scandalous, Wildean libertine with an Instagram account to match and his book, a guide to life, is a naughty little firecracker. DEBORAH FRANCES WHITE
