I didn’t know who Samantha Irby was prior to Goodreads suggesting We’re Never Meeting in Real Life but she appears to be a writer who has a funny, popular blog (bitchesgottaeat- great name). Life was not easy for Samantha growing up. Her mother had MS and died when Sam was a teenager; her father was largely absent and died shortly after her mother passed away. She also has Chron’s disease and IBS.
Right now I am sporadically trying to be vegan, because I love animals and being a good steward of the environment. LOL JK. I have inflammatory bowel disease and nothing is more inflammatory than meat and milk, but wow oh wow, I’ve never tried anything so difficult in my life and I was homeless before.
She is a full figured lesbian (although except for her wife she has only dated men) with a great sense of humor about the rough hand she was dealt as a child. Her essays are pretty funny and widely inappropriate although I could have done without her graphic descriptions of learning how to perform oral sex on a woman. This isn’t for everyone but there are more good to great stories than bad.
Thank you Ben Affleck for making The Accountant so good and punchy, and God bless Forest Whitaker for existing.
