"If Tina Fey and David Sedaris had a daughter, she would be Maeve Higgins." —Glamour
A startlingly hilarious essay collection about one woman's messy path to finding her footing in New York City, from breakout comedy star and podcaster Maeve Higgins
Maeve Higgins was a bestselling author and comedian in her native Ireland when, at the grand old age of thirty-one, she left the only home she'd ever known in search of something more and found herself in New York City. Together, the essays in Maeve in America create a smart, funny, and revealing portrait of a woman who aims for the stars but sometimes hits the ceiling and the inimitable city that helped make her who she is.
Here are stories of not being able to afford a dress for the ball, of learning to live with yourself while you're still figuring out how to love yourself, of the true significance of realizing what sort of shelter dog you would be. Self-aware and laugh-out-loud funny, this collection is also a fearless exploration of the awkward questions in life, such as: Is clapping too loudly at a gig a good enough reason to break up with somebody? Is it ever really possible to leave home?
"Maeve Higgins is hilarious, poignant, conversational, and my favorite Irish import since U2. You're in for a treat." —Phoebe Robinson
