“Sloane Crosley does the impossible. She stays consistently funny and delivers a book that is alive and jumping.”

Steve Martin

Named a Best Book of the Year by Cosmo, Amazon, Esquire, Goodreads, the NY Public Library, Real Simple, Refinery29, and the Washington Post

From the New York Times–bestselling author Sloane Crosley comes Look Alive Out There—a brand-new collection of essays filled with her trademark hilarity, wit, and charm. The characteristic heart and punch-packing observations are back, but with a newfound coat of maturity. A thin coat. More of a blazer, really.

Fans of I Was Told There’d Be Cake and How Did You Get This Number know Sloane Crosley’s life as a series of relatable but madcap misadventures. In Look Alive Out There, whether it’s scaling active volcanoes, crashing shivas, playing herself on Gossip Girl, befriending swingers, or staring down the barrel of the fertility gun, Crosley continues to rise to the occasion with unmatchable nerve and electric one-liners. And as her subjects become more serious, her essays deliver not just laughs but lasting emotional heft and insight. Crosley has taken up the gauntlets thrown by her predecessors—Dorothy Parker, Nora Ephron, David Sedaris—and crafted something rare, affecting, and true.

“A marvel…the latest collection from the Manhattan-based essayist suggests she can write engagingly about nearly anything.”

Kirkus, starred review
