So You're a Little Sad, So What?: Nice Things to Say to Yourself on Bad Days and Other Essays

by Alicia Tobin Author

With her characteristically bold wit, comedian Alicia Tobin brings countless moments of vulnerability, humility, and hilarity to her debut collection of essays, So You’re a Little Sad, So What? Whether she’s writing about mental health, chronic illness, or traumatic memories of Velcro shoes, Tobin doesn’t use her humor to avoid life’s most difficult moments, but to engage with them in a heartfelt way. From some of the most sensitive times in her existence—breakups, eviction, her parents’ separation, and grief, Tobin brings lightness where there was otherwise darkness in this unforgettable collection.
