When You Find Out the World Is Against You

And Other Funny Memories About Awful Moments

by Kelly Oxford
Eva Kaminsky

Audiobook

The famed internet personality—named one of Rolling Stone's Funniest People on Twitter and creator of the viral #notokay for women to share their stories of sexual assault—and bestselling author of Everything Is Perfect When You're a Liar turns her laser-like wit to anxiety, parenthood (or "the sheer insanity of being in charge of the safety and livelihood of three people besides myself"), popular culture, and more in this razor sharp essay collection.

Like Chelsea Handler, David Sedaris, Dave Barry, and Patton Oswalt, Kelly Oxford—the Canadian native and Los Angeles transplant—has won legions of fans with her comedic skill, down-to-earth voice, and bull's-eye observations on the absurdity of modern life. For example:

"Congratulations America, I finally get a green card & now I may have to move back to Canada. Trump in the final two for President. Surreal."

"Dear Parents of pre-teen boys, Tell them they'll get ED by 18 if they watch Internet porn then buy them some porno mags. Thank You, Women"

"I'm not going to have a coffee this morning with the intent of blaming all my screw-ups on the missed coffee."

"1 good piece of news today: 7yo told me there is a secret war going on between muffins and cupcakes & I haven't stopped thinking about it."

Dishing about her kids, her move to America (and what she really thinks about life in LA), her marriage, and how she copes (or not) with anxiety and depression, When You Find Out the World is Against You is Kelly at her honest and most disarmingly funny best. Filled with biting, wise, and laugh-out-loud insights, this vastly entertaining collection of vignettes will make you think as much as it will make you laugh.
