Reviews

`Jia Tolentino is the best young essayist at work in the United States, one I've consistently admired and learned from. All through the book, single sentences flash like lightning to show something familiar in a startling way, but she also builds extended arguments with her usual, unusual blend of lyricism and scepticism, and in the end, we have a picture of America that was as missing as it was needed' Rebecca Solnit

`This is a whip-smart, challenging book that will prompt many of us to take a long, hard look in the mirror. It filled me with hope' Zadie Smith

`In her first book of essays, New Yorker writer Jia Tolentino deftly tackles the great millennial topics of the day, using her own experiences, whipsmart cultural observations and historical research ... A thoroughly enjoyable education on society' Vogue

`There is one guarantee with this New Yorker writer's book of essays: it will make you stop and think ... Tolentino's writing will leave you feeling a bit more humble, and a bit more intelligent. Her personal stories and narratives feel natural in these essays, as if they should always have been there, and bring new life to old subjects' Independent

`For anyone who likes zeitgeisty cultural commentary but through an incredibly smart lens, as academic as they are topical ... I really recommend these essays' Pandora Sykes

`Brilliant essays on everything from the internet to the self. Is Tolentino the new Joan Didion?' ES Magazine

`The summer beach read for the woke-minded from superstar millennial journalist Jia Tolentino' Sunday Times

`If you've read Tolentino's essays in the New Yorker, you already know that she's the millennial Susan Sontag, a brilliant voice in cultural criticism ... Even better: She writes like a dream' Washington Post
