Samantha Irby: Bitches Gotta Eat

The New York Times in its review of Wow, No Thank You, Samatha Irby’s just-published fourth book, had the following recommendation: ‘Read Irby because she understands the mutinies of the body. She understands suffering and uncertainty, and is wildly, seditiously funny on both… She might be our great bard of quarantine — with an unimpeachable daytime pajama look.’

Irby’s first three books, as well as her blog ‘Bitches Gotta Eat’ have made her one of the best-loved humourists in the world. Dark and deadpan, swinging between riotous and forensic, a conversation with Samantha Irby will be the tonic you need right now. After all, how can anyone go past a book in 2020 that includes an essay called ‘A Case for Remaining Indoors’? Chaired by Gemma Cairney.

This is a live event, with an author Q&A. This event will not be available to watch on demand after the scheduled live broadcast.
