This book made me laugh harder than just about anything I've come across in the past year. It was also one of the most raw pieces of writing I've read. Jenny Lawson writes with humor and honesty about her struggles with mental illness, reminding us all that being broken is part of being human.

Despite my misgivings about reading a post-apocalyptic novel (in which the apocalypse was brought about, in part, by a virus) in the midst of a pandemic, this book pulled me in and kept me riveted until it was done. This is marginally a story about the ways in which humans continue to fail our planet and our species; but more than that, it is a story of the hope and beauty that humans find in spite of everything.
