November Book Club Selection: 'Meaty' by Samantha Irby

LitReactor Book Club

Every month here at LitReactor, we celebrate reading with a new selection in our Book Club. For November we will be reading and discussing the non-fiction collection, Meaty, by Samantha Irby.  Here's a synopsis:

Samantha Irby explodes onto the page in her debut collection of brand-new essays about being a complete dummy trying to laugh her way through her ridiculous life of failed relationships, taco feasts, bouts with Crohn's Disease, & more, all told with the same scathing wit & poignant candor long-time readers have come to expect from her notoriously hilarious blog, bitches gotta eat.

Author: Samantha Irby is a writer and performer who mostly jokes about hot dudes, kittens, and magical tacos at the highly visited Internet site bitches gotta eat. Seriously. Go read it. In addition to co-hosting The Sunday Night Sex Show, a sex-positive live lit show, and Guts & Glory, a reading series featuring essayists, she has performed at Essay Fiesta, Write Club, This Much is True, Grown Folks Stories, The Paper Machete, and Story Club, among others. She opened for Baratunde Thurston during his "How to Be Black" tour. Her work has appeared on the Rumpus and Jezebel. Irby and creative partner Ian Belknap write a comedy advice blog at irbyandian.com.

Discussion for Meaty will kick off on November 1st, but you should pick up the book and start reading ASAP!  (We've provided a handy link below). Once you're locked and loaded, you can announce your presence in the Book Club. (No invitation needed!)  That thread is where all discussion about the book will go down.

If you read our October Book Club selection, The Booked. Anthology, edited by Pela Via, make sure you check out that thread as discussion there has officially started.

Happy reading!
