Product description

Review

"Marnell recounts parties and drugs and sex in writing that mirrors the experience of being on drugs – sometimes fizzing ... and, just as often, cold and blunt and brutal" (Guardian)

"A marvel of a book...Through the highs, lows and lols, the self-loathing, self-tan and self-medicating, How to Murder Your Life is possibly the best book ever written by a recovering drug addict about the beauty industry." (i-D (Vice))

"Marnell is a great storyteller. Funny, with the clever hustler’s knack for an energetically spun tall tale, she has an upbeat tone that hardly falters, even when she recounts the most harrowing episodes of her life." (The New Yorker)

"[Marnell] writes about her life with a candor and self-awareness that is unexpected...I read this book in two wide-eyed sittings, cringing and laughing the whole way through." (BuzzFeed)

"The book is as compelling ― and as problematic ― as her magazine writing: vivid, maddening, heartbreaking, very funny, chaotic and repetitive, as benders are." (New York Times)

"If you're captivated by the irresistible trio of beauty, success, and addiction, surrender to Cat Marnell's How to Murder Your Life. The xoJane columnist dishes on her previous wild-child ways, from shoplifting to party hopping to spiritual groveling, to finding a measure of humor and grace." (Elle)

"[Marnell's] memoir brims with all the intoxicating intrigue of a thriller and yet all the sobering pathos of a gifted writer's true-life journey to recover her former health, happiness, ambitions and identity." (Harper's Bazaar)

"Fantastically entertaining." (Glamour)

"A gifted memoirist ... [She displays] a willingness to tell unflattering truths about herself that reminded me of Elizabeth Wurtzel, author of Prozac Nation" (New York Times Magazine)

"Challenging ... captivating and controversial" (The Atlantic Wire)

Book Description

A controversial, brave and revealing insight into the realities of drug addiction, from one of New York’s most remarkable young writers
