In the spirit of his New York Times bestseller Love Poems for Married People and Love Poems for People with Children, as well as his wildly popular New Yorker pieces, Thurber Prize-winner John Kenney presents a hilarious new collection of poetry for anxious people.
John Kenney is the New York Times bestselling author of the humorous poetry collections Love Poems for Married People and Love Poems for People with Children, and the novels Talk to Me and Truth in Advertising, which won the Thurber Prize for American Humor. He has worked for many years as a copywriter. He has also been a contributor to The New Yorker magazine since 1999. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
"This is a collection of poems rooted in the day-to-day minutiae of life's little stressors. Kenney is able to capture these moments with a comedic salve. There may have never been a moment when we've needed these more. Just like the daily affirmation app tells us: 'Today is going to be a great day.' And Kenney, like us, knows that it is not." --Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star
