“Meaty” Book Review

Irby’s collection of essays is certainly no-holds barred. Covering topics from her difficult childhood and her dating life to living with Crohn’s Disease and her love of food, Irby offers her unfiltered views on life, love, and tacos. I found her writing to be super refreshing in its honesty and boldness. Some of the essays can get a little raunchy (and possibly TMI?), so I had to take off one star for that. However, for people who aren’t squeamish about these topics, the book is funny as hell and moving at the same time (I cried at the end of one essay). I’m so excited to read her other book now too. Definite thumbs up.

4 stars
