Product description

Review

"At once devastating and delightful, this deeply personal collection of essays (named for Broder's popular Twitter handle) is as raw as it is funny."--Cosmopolitan

"If her Twitter account is a darkly comic 'creative way to distract myself and cope, ' as [Melissa Broder] describes it, then her essays are deeper excavations of that same mind."--Elle

"Broder may be talking about things like sexts, Botox, and crushes, but these things are considered alongside contemplations about mortality, identity, and the difficulty of finding substance in a world where sometimes it's so much easier to exist behind a screen."--The Fader

"Her writing is deeply personal, sophisticated in its wit, and at the same time, devastating. SO SAD TODAY is a portrait of modern day existence told with provocative, irreverent honesty."
--Nylon

"If Melissa Broder weren't so fucking funny I would have wept through this entire book. Love, sex, addiction, mental illness and childhood trauma all join hands and dance in a circle, to the tune of Melissa's unmatched wit and dementedly perfect take on this terrifying orb we call home."--LennyLetter.com

"Instead of supersizing her angsty tweets, Broder presents a dizzying array of intimate dispatches and confessions...She has a near-supernatural ability to not only lay bare her darkest secrets, but to festoon those secrets with jokes, subterfuge, deep shame, bravado, and poetic turns of phrase."--New York Magazine

"It would have been easy for Broder to stay anonymous and simply publish a book of @SoSadToday's most popular tweets, but instead, she chose to challenge herself in what turned out to be a triumph of unsettlingly relatable prose."--VanityFair.com

"Under her beloved Twitter persona So Sad Today, Broder is probably the Internet's most powerful merchant of feelings."--GQ.com

"SO SAD TODAY is a desperately honest collection of essays, the kind that make you cringe as you eagerly, shamelessly consume them. Melissa Broder lays herself bare but she does so with strength, savvy, and style. Above all, these essays are sad and uncomfortable and their own kind of gorgeous. They reveal so much about what it is to live in this world, right now."--Roxane Gay, New York Times bestselling author of Bad Feminist

"Melissa Broder's essays are as raw as an open vein."--Molly Crabapple, author of Drawing Blood

Review

‘If Melissa Broder weren’t so fucking funny I would have wept through this entire book.’

(Lena Dunham)

So Sad Today is desperately honest ― Melissa Broder lays herself bare but she does so with strength, savvy, and style. Sad and uncomfortable and its own kind of gorgeous. Reveals so much about what it is to live in this world, right now.’

(Roxane Gay, New York Times bestselling author of Bad Feminist)

‘An utterly bewitching book and … a thrillingly tangible account of what it is to be a human being, right here, right now. I loved it. So many staggering ― and difficult ― observations. So many beautiful turns of phrase. There aren't many writers who can stare into the abyss and report back with humour, panache, and a rich, gutsy spirit. Melissa Broder can. It's a book I'm going to read again, and talk about, and pass on.’

(Emma Jane Unsworth, author of Animals)

‘If symptoms could write, they would sound a lot like Melissa Broder’s So Sad Today. Broder's angst is existential and pathological and filled with as many holes as there are things to fill it with. An insight into the perverse persistence of hope and humanity, even in the age of clickbait and online individualism.’

(Dr Nina Power, the author of One-Dimensional Woman)

‘What a decadent, hilarious, important, devastating book this is. So Sad Today will explode on impact in your mind.’

(Jami Attenberg, New York Times bestselling author of The Middlesteins and Saint Mazie)

‘With irreverence and wit, Melissa Broder confronts the most hidden and grotesque parts of herself. Reading her, it seems that we're all fucked-up, but it's because of this that we connect with each other, fall in love, find contentment, and maybe even a little happiness.’

(Sarah Gerard, author of Binary Star)

‘Extravagantly intimate … There’s a bleak beauty in the way Broder articulates her lowest moments.’

(Bookforum)

'Melissa Broder: as raw as an open vein.'

(Molly Crabapple, author of Drawing Blood)

‘From the moment I started this book, I couldn’t put it down ― Melissa Broder GETS IT. This book takes the side effects of mental illness and makes them funny ... Anyone that is battling with depression, anxiety, existential dread/crises, or just anyone who has a brain should read this book.’

(Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast)

‘Irreverent, ballsy, impossible to put down. With courage and humour, Broder shows us that the underbelly of self-awareness is the existential sads.’ 

(Courtney Maum, author of I Am Having So Much Fun Here Without You)
