"Helen Fielding made it funny and fictional in Bridget Jones's Diary; Elizabeth Gilbert did it without laughs in Eat, Pray, Love. Now in this mashup of memoir, fiction, self-help and philosophy, Sheila Heti has added a bit of a story, quite a few blow jobs and some cheeky exclamation marks, and finally made it credible" * Guardian * "A really amazing metafiction-meets-nonfiction novel" * Lena Dunham, star and creator of HBO series 'Girls' * "A beguiling "novel from life" about creativity and authenticity" * Guardian Pick of 2013 * "Funny, bawdy and fiercely original, this is the book everyone's talking about - and for good reason" * Easy Living * "A shamelessly funny read that's got all of America talking" * Grazia * "Part of a growing movement to explore the messiness, self-consciousness and doubt of young women who have been told the world offers them unprecedented opportunity, and who are discovering just what that means" -- Kira Cochrane * G2 * "It will be one of the most talked-about books of 2013" * Irish Tatler, 2013 Hot List * "Original...hilarious... Part confessional, part play, part novel, and more-it's one wild ride...Think HBO'S Girls in book form" * Marie Claire * "Utterly beguiling: blunt, charming, funny, and smart. Heti subtly weaves together ideas about sex, femininity and artistic ambition. Reading this genre-defying book was pure pleasure" * David Shields, author of Reality Hunger *
