New York Times Bestselling Non-Fiction Author, Sloane Crosley, will be speaking to Clark College students, alumni, and the general public this November.


The Buzz

Charming, elegant, wise, and comedic, these essays absolutely sparkle and entertain. Sloane Crosley is a twenty-first century Dorothy Parker, and this book is a gem and heralds a wry new voice in American letters. Gorgeous writing, outrageous humor—it’s all here!

—Jonathan Ames

“Sloane Crosley does the impossible. She stays consistently funny and delivers a book that is alive and jumping.”

― Steve Martin

“In her third collection of personal essays, [Crosley] continues her tradition of hilarious insight into the human condition…[She] is exceedingly clever and has a witticism for all occasions, but it is her willingness to confront some of life’s darker corners with honesty and vulnerability that elevates this collection.”

 — Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Crosley is like a tap-dancer, lighthearted and showman­like…but capable of surprising you with the reserves of emotion and keen social observation.”

—The New York Times Book Review
