Smart, edgy, hilarious, and unabashedly raunchy New York Times bestselling author Samantha Irby explodes onto the printed page in her uproarious first collection of essays.

Updated with her favorite Instagramable, couch-friendly recipes, this much-beloved romp is treat for anyone in dire need of Irby’s infamous, scathing wit and poignant candor.
Samantha Irby is the author of the New York Times bestseller We Are Never Meeting in Real Life and writes a blog called bitches gotta eat.
Praise for MEATY
“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.”
“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
