From the comedian behind the web series "Whine About It" and "To Be Honest" comes a collection of hilariously anguished essays chronicling awful moments from his life so far, the humiliations of being an adult, and other little indignities. Matt Bellassai has no idea what he's doing. He's got some things figured out. But the rest is all just a terrible, disgusting mess. Just to clarify, though, it is absolutely not a memoir; Matt is far too young to have done anything worth remembering. This is also most certainly not a book of advice; he is too woefully ill-prepared for life to offer anything in the way of counsel. Call this a collection of awful moments that led to his grumbling, blundering adulthood - a chronicle of little indignities that, when taken together, amount to a life of hilarious anguish. Matt reveals how hard it is to shed his past as the Midwest's biggest nerd and the time he came out to his friends and family (the closet was a bit messy). Matt also wrestles with the humiliations of adulthood, like living alone with no one to heat his microwave dinners, and combating the inner voice that tells him to say aloud all the things the rest of us are smart enough to keep to ourselves. Mat Bellassi is a writer and stand-up comedian. He was born in Chicago.
