Summary
"A New Yorker, trying not to be jaded, accompanies a cash-strapped pot grower to a "Clothing Optional Resort" in California. A nerdy high schooler has her first sexual experience at geology camp. A young woman fundraises for a social-media savvy cancer patient whose circle of supporters grows increasingly obsessive. A college student, the night of her father's funeral, watches an old video of her Bat Mitzvah, hypnotized by the image of the girl she used to be. Frank and irreverent, this collection offers a singular view of growing up--or not--and finding love--or not--in today's ever-uncertain landscape. How to form lasting connections in a world saturated by insincerity and ennui? How to transcend the indignities of middle school? How to build a strong sense of self while also trying to figure out online dating? In its bone-dry sense of humor, its pithy observations, and its thrilling ability to unmask the most revealing moments of human interaction, no matter how fleeting, this book announces a new talent to be reckoned with"--
