I laughed out loud many times listening to this audiobook. I'm not sure if R. Eric Thomas would cringe at this comparison, but he was giving me Titus Andromedon vibes and I liked it.

R. Eric Thomas is a gem! I thoroughly enjoyed his first memoir "Here for It, or How to Save Your Soul in America". This is even better. Walking through a couple of years pre-pandemic and through Covid, Thomas ruminates on the state of the world, the state of his life and who he is. It sounds very serious but he does it such a down to earth and HILARIOUS way that I laughed out loud multiple times while reading. This book is filled with humor and hope, two of my favorite storytelling themes.

It's very difficult to find a book that can make you burst out laughing and then start crying at various points, but this one is gorgeous and does an amazing job at it. I hadn't read the author's first book of essays, but I definitely need to if it's as good as this one. His love/hate relationship with Baltimore alone is worth the price of admission, but he really does word things beautifully and takes the reader on a fun yet poignant journey with him. Listening to him read his book in audio was wonderful too.… (mais)

An absolute delight. I loved his first book and couldn’t wait to get my hands on the audio of this one. He is so funny, he reminds me a bit of Sedaris. This collection of essays includes thoughts on the pandemic and marriage. He blends humor with serious moments of grief. I loved it.

“All of which was to say, the world is so strange and so wild and sometimes so beautiful and I am so many different versions of myself away from you, but I’m trying to share as much of it as I can.”
