Publisher's Summary

From acclaimed poet and creator of the popular Twitter account @sosadtoday comes a darkly funny and brutally honest collection of essays.

Melissa Broder always struggled with anxiety. In the fall of 2012, she went through a harrowing cycle of panic attacks and dread that wouldn't abate for months. So she began @sosadtoday, an anonymous Twitter feed that allowed her to express her darkest feelings and that quickly gained a dedicated following.

In So Sad Today, Broder delves deeper into the existential themes she explores on Twitter, grappling with sex, death, love, low self-esteem, addiction, and the drama of waiting for the universe to text you back. With insights as sharp as her humor, Broder explores - in prose that is both ballsy and beautiful, aggressively colloquial and achingly poetic - questions most of us are afraid to even acknowledge, let alone answer, in order to discover what it really means to be a person in this modern world.

What the Critics Say

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

"With a title recalling Yeats...Broder risks the divine in her second book...shrewd, funny, twisted, sad poems...." (The Chicago Tribune)

"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 best-selling author of Bad Feminist)

    I can't imagine the courage it takes to be this brave and open about - well everything. All the great moments and dark humor in this book are well worth the read. Thank you so much for sharing, I really loved every minute of it.
