INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
A laugh-out-loud funny look at pop culture and social media stardom from one of the most popular funemployed millennials today, perfect for fans of Next Level Basic and The Betches.
As the creator of the breakout Instagram account @GirlWithNoJob, Claudia Oshry has turned not wanting an ordinary career into a thriving media company and pop culture-focused podcast and morning show. The origins of her pop culture obsessions can be traced back to household debates over boy bands, and her flair for the dramatic to her young emulation of Blair Waldorf. When she started @GirlWithNoJob, Claudia entered that world herself as a social media influencer, sharing her unbelievable—and unbelievably awkward—encounters with some of her favorite A-listers as she navigates her incredible access.
Now, in this juicy, behind-the-scenes look at the life of an Instagram sensation, Claudia leaves nothing out as she contemplates staying true to yourself while hustling in today’s digital culture. Sometimes the best lessons are learned the hard way, and her journey hasn’t been without its punch-in-the-face doses of humility. But, like anyone with a relentless desire to be popular, she dusts herself off and finds a new, better way forward. With humor and unique insights, Claudia examines the nature of social media celebrity, the many sides of fandom, and cancel culture. If there’s one thing she knows for sure, she was born thirsty, and she’s here for another round!
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Social media star Claudia Oshry has turned her most embarrassing moments into a relatable, self-deprecating art form. Her hilarious memoir—named after the blog that propelled her to viral fame—has a little bit of everything, from the silly (getting caught on reality TV without bronzer) to the serious (the tragedy of losing her dad during her teens). Oshry even explores the controversy that ensued when her pre-fame racist and anti-Muslim tweets resurfaced. The book captures Oshry’s hilarious, ranty tone perfectly, and also gives us plenty of the deliciously light stuff, including unfiltered accounts of her run-ins with celebrities like Robert Pattinson and Elon Musk. If you don’t already know and love Oshry from her online antics or podcast, this outrageously fun read will make you an instant fan. The way she roasts herself for past ridiculousness is equal parts hilarious and inspiring. In her own immortal words: “That’s called growth, b-tch!”
