Description

Entertainment Weekly, "Fall's 20 Must-Reads" (2018) Essence, "Fall 2018 Guide to All Things Funny" Bustle, "18 New Nonfiction Books to Know in October 2018" "Robinson offers deft cultural criticism and hilarious personal anecdotes that will make readers laugh, cringe, and cry. Everything may indeed be trash but writing like this reminds us that we're gonna make it through all the terrible things with honesty, laughter, and faith."-Roxane Gay, New York Times bestselling author New York Times bestselling author and star of 2 Dope Queens Phoebe Robinson is back with a new, hilarious, and timely essay collection on gender, race, dating, and the dumpster fire that is our world. Written in her trademark unfiltered and witty style, Robinson's latest collection is a call to arms. Outfitted with on-point pop culture references, these essays tackle a wide range of topics: giving feminism a tough-love talk on intersectionality, telling society's beauty standards to kick rocks, and calling foul on our culture's obsession with work. Robinson also gets personal, exploring money problems she's hidden from her parents, how dating is mainly a warmed-over bowl of hot mess, and, definitely most important, meeting Bono not once, but twice. She's struggled with being a woman with a political mind and a woman with an ever-changing jeans size. She knows about trash because she sees it every day-and because she's seen roughly one hundred thousand hours of reality TV and zero hours of Schindler's List. With the intimate voice of a new best friend, Everything's Trash, But It's Okay is a candid perspective for a generation that has had the rug pulled out from under it too many times to count.

Professional reviews

"If current events have got you down, Phoebe Robinson will ease the doldrums with her second collection of laugh-out-loud sardonic essays. Robinson narrates her insights with the sharp wit that had listeners tuning in to her cohosted podcast. Listeners can escape from the bleak daily news feed by choosing to hear Robinson giggle in their ears at her own outlandishness. Her style is off the cuff, rapid-fire, and hysterical, taking us for a wild ride featuring topics from fake British accents to risquŽ Google searches after David Bowie's death. Her unflinching truth telling challenges feminists to be more inclusive of all women's experiences and asks all listeners to examine discrimination. This is "edutainment" in that Robinson informs as she entertains. M.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
