If you happen to be one of the many lovely and supportive people who have been asking for years about how my book is coming, and when can you buy it - your time has come. You can pre-order by clicking on the book. It will come right to you in the mail. Think of it as a very long love letter from me:

FUCK YEAH.

We are so proud and excited to announce that in February, Emily Books will make Meghan Daum’s My Misspent Youth available for the first time as an ebook. These essays — about debt, about leaving New York, about online dating, about adulthood, about carpet — are some of our favorites of all time. And soon, you’ll be able to read them on your phone (iPad, Kindle, Kobo, Nook, etc).
We usually keep our picks secret until they’re in subscribers’ mailboxes, but this time we’re announcing early to give you time to mark your calendars for Emily Books’s first L.A. event!  
On February 20th, join Emily and Meghan at M Bar, where Emily will ask Meghan questions and then Meghan will read and then you’ll ask Meghan questions and then we’ll all drink. Also please be nice to Emily, this is only her 2nd visit to L.A. of her lifetime.

Meghan Daum book lit work NYC writing

"I don’t know how much useful advice I have for my students, but I do feel evangelical when explaining that their first duty as novelists is to love their creations—their characters—wholeheartedly. And that their second duty is to ignore the protectiveness that love naturally engenders—the urge to shelter their characters from harm—and instead subject them to serial catastrophes. Expose their flaws mercilessly, publicly. Hold them up to ridicule. Contrive fiendishly cruel and resourceful ways to mortify them. By doing so, you’re doing them a favor. For memorable fiction—the only kind worth attempting—typically makes a passage through, and at best only partially triumphs over, the world’s all too numerous excruciations."
- Brad Leithauser, “Reading Your Friends’ Novels,” The New Yorker’s Page Turner blog
