Absolutely bloody great. As a textbook, concrete, public changing, foghorn extrovert, I find Jessica Pan's descriptions of introversion and shyness fascinating and she is very funny. -- Nell Frizzell
Well, I adored this. Beautifully written, fascinating and so, so funny. Had me properly guffawing on the bus. -- Lauren Bravo
Sorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come achieves what so many books claim (but then frankly fail) to do: making you laugh, while at the same time managing to inspire. Pan is a gem, and her introvert's exploration of extroversion is all at once delightful and deftly rendered. -- Sara Barron
Relatable, moving, and fantastically funny. -- Rhik Samadder
Hilarious, unexpected and ultimately life-affirming.
Beautifully written and so funny! I related to it A LOT.
