Witty, insightful reflections on twentysomething struggles from “a writer beyond gifted and generous” (Heidi Julavits).
Flailing in jobs, failing at love, getting addicted and un-addicted to people, food, and drugs—I’ll Tell You in Person is a disarmingly frank account of attempts at adulthood and all the less than perfect ways we get there. Chloe Caldwell has an unsparing knack for looking within and reporting back what’s really there, rather than what she’d like you to see.
“I couldn’t stop reading this book, and when I was finished I kept looking around to see where my awesome new friend went . . . I love this person’s life, and I love the way she writes about it—funny and blunt and chatty and truthful.” —Michelle Tea
“I’ll read anything Chloe Caldwell writes. She’s a rare bird: fearless, dark, prolific, unpretentious, and truly honest.” —Elisa Albert
“Her work is never less than fascinating.” —Brooklyn Magazine
