“The internet’s best friend.” — Flare
From the author of the popular newsletter That’s What She Said, Nobody Cares is a frank, funny personal essay collection about work, failure, friendship, and the messy business of being alive in your twenties and thirties.
As she shares her hard-won insights from screwing up, growing up, and trying to find her own path, Anne T. Donahue’s debut book offers all the honesty, laughs, and reassurance of a late-night phone call with your best friend. Whether she’s giving a signature pep talk, railing against summer, or describing her own mental health struggles, Anne reminds us that failure is normal, saying no to things is liberating, and that we’re all a bunch of beautiful disasters — and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Stressed-out and quick-witted millennials have found their patron saint in Anne T. Donahue. Her confident essays are packed with such hard-won wisdom, you’d never guess this was her debut. Nobody Cares swings from breezy topics—including the value of a killer vintage wardrobe, the art of staying in, and the wonders of One Direction—to weightier material like how Donahue lost her faith and confronted her alcoholism. Written with scalpel-sharp insight, wit, and sometimes unnerving honesty, Nobody Cares is part pep talk, part confessional, and all heart.
