"Ask me who my favorite author is and I won't hesitate to reply with, "Samantha Irby." I love Irby's books so much that I would, without a shadow of a doubt, flip to a random page in any one of them, close my eyes, point to a sentence, and tattoo said sentence across my clavicle. That's how much I love this woman."
— Greg Mania, Paper Magazine

"Chicago favorite well-loved around The A.V. Club offices, Samantha Irby is getting some long-due national attention after her 2017 collection....Irby’s first book, Meaty, has been re-relased, and anyone who picked up We Are Never Meeting In Real Life or has enjoyed her blog, Bitches Gotta Eat, should once more immerse themselves in her startling humor and wit."
— A. V. Club

“Raunchy, funny and vivid…Those faint of heart beware...strap in and get ready for a roller-coaster ride to remember."
— Kirkus Reviews

“Amazingly crass, defiant, witty, terrifying, and wondrous...[Irby] cuts the bawdy, wickedly funny pieces with some truly poignant palate cleansers...Irby’s voice is raw, gripping, and ...Delicious."
— Booklist

“Her candor in style and subject matter—mostly sex, dating, and the general lousiness of men—has earned Samantha Irby a cult following... Honesty mixed with self-deprecating humor is what propels reader."
— Time Out Chicago

"Samantha Irby is as bad as she wants to be."
— Chicago Tribune

"Whether she’s writing about her latest inflammatory bowel disease attack or documenting a sexual escapade gone awry (sometimes simultaneously), you’ll most likely be able to relate to Irby’s tell-all book. Her raw honesty and scathing sense of humor will make you laugh out loud…"
— JET

"There is no summing up Sam—no writerly preface, no small-talk tidbits, no rundown of vital stats that can suffice. She is irreducible, like a prime number, or a quark [...] Irby's writing has a powerfully intimacy, a direct connection between her and her readers. On the page, she's more an essayist than a storyteller per se, with the essayist's intellectual habits—exploring ideas, contradicting herself, poking thoughts to see if they burst, and then reveling in the mess."
— Chicago Reader

"Irby has the rare ability to divulge her personal problems to an expansive, invisible Internet audience and still dazzle a crowded room of literati."
— Chicago Magazine
