As a writer and performer, Samantha Irby is a force of nature. As the genius behind the hilarious blog BITCHES GOTTA EAT, she's your sharp-tongued best friend who can't help but tell it like it is. In her debut essay collection MEATY, Samantha Irby explodes onto the page with essays about laughing her way through her ridiculous life of failed relationships, taco feasts, bouts with Crohn's Disease, and more. Written with the same scathing wit and poignant bluntness long-time readers have come to expect from her riotous blog, MEATY takes on subjects both highbrow and low--from why she can't be mad at Lena Dunham, to the anguish of growing up with a sick mother, to how to prepare your disgusting meat carcass for some new, hot sex, to why she wants to write your mom's profile.

Samantha Irby is an extremely talented writer, who is raw, full of wit, with a keen eye for worldly observations. She keeps it real and walks in her truth, but almost becomes a single note with her constant sexual references. She’s at her best when sharing about her family, childhood, and just daily interactions with others. I could relate to her in so many ways and could feel her pain as she described her parents. However, her writing and voice become diminished with the sexual references. Maybe it’s a generational thing and I’m just not relating or perhaps she’s just a tad too vulgar, which is sad, because it overshadows this incredible talent.

This is like a cross between poetry and blog postings, and although the writing is fun and entertaining and sometimes just plain crazy (to an older white lady), it wasn't as fun as reading her actual blog. Too bad as I love her voice, enjoy her whenever she's on a podcast, and like reading this style of book. It just seemed sort of lonely and self-deprecating. And that's the opposite of what I like about her otherwise.
