Talking IRL

Talking IRL

Pearlman, Robb
$7.98
Make small talk fun with more than 100 prompts and twenty-four conversation-starter stickers to fill any awkward silence.

Created for anyone who would rather text, Slack, or e-mail than speak, Talking IRL: Conversation Starters for When You Have to Talk to Someone helps eliminate awkward pauses to get readers through any social situation.

We've become so used to communicating via text or emojis that many of us do not know how to navigate an actual verbal conversation. Whether at a party, in a meeting, or even on a phone call, figuring out what to say--let alone the right thing to say--can be as awkward as it is emotionally scarring.

Talking IRL humorously addresses everyday danger zones--from work and dating to parties and funerals--with checklists for getting through a business lunch, tips on how to listen without picking up your phone to check your messages, and quotes from celebrities that speak directly to having to make, and get away from, conversation.

With twenty-four conversation-starter stickers like I'm from ____, Ask me about my ______, and I stan _______, Talking IRL is a handy, indispensable guide for grads, people starting new jobs or moving to a new city, or, let's face it, anyone who comes into contact with other people!

Enemy of the People: A Cartoonist's Journey

Enemy of the People: A Cartoonist's Journey

Rogers, Rob
$24.99
After 25 years as the political cartoonist for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Rob Rogers was fired for drawing cartoons critical of President Trump.

In Enemy of the People Rogers writes, "Trump's open embrace of the darkest, ugliest corners of human nature has emboldened racists, neo-Nazis, criminals, thugs, despots, misogynists and liars to come out from under their rocks and display their shameful behavior publicly. That includes publishers and editors who years ago may have been too ashamed to express their hateful views on the editorial page." From a cartoonkilling spree to a social media buzz, from an appearance on CNN to his final days at the paper, Rogers chronicles his unenviable journey with honesty, wit, and humor.

    Calypso

    Sedaris, David
    $17.99
    David Sedaris returns with his most deeply personal and darkly hilarious book.

    If you've ever laughed your way through David Sedaris's cheerfully misanthropic stories, you might think you know what you're getting with Calypso. You'd be wrong.

    When he buys a beach house on the Carolina coast, Sedaris envisions long, relaxing vacations spent playing board games and lounging in the sun with those he loves most. And life at the Sea Section, as he names the vacation home, is exactly as idyllic as he imagined, except for one tiny, vexing realization: it's impossible to take a vacation from yourself.

    With Calypso, Sedaris sets his formidable powers of observation toward middle age and mortality. Make no mistake: these stories are very, very funny--it's a book that can make you laugh 'til you snort, the way only family can. Sedaris's powers of observation have never been sharper, and his ability to shock readers into laughter unparalleled. But much of the comedy here is born out of that vertiginous moment when your own body betrays you and you realize that the story of your life is made up of more past than future.

    This is beach reading for people who detest beaches, required reading for those who loathe small talk and love a good tumor joke. Calypso is simultaneously Sedaris's darkest and warmest book yet--and it just might be his very best.

    Daily Show With Jon Stewart Presents Earth (The Book) : A Visitor's Guide to the Human Race

    Daily Show With Jon Stewart Presents Earth (The Book) : A Visitor's Guide to the Human Race

    Stewart, Jon (EDT)
    $16.99
    The eagerly awaited new book from the Emmy-winning, Oscar-hosting, Daily Show-anchoring Jon Stewart--the man behind the megaseller America (The Book).

    Where do we come from? Who created us? Why are we here? These questions have puzzled us since the dawn of time, but when it became apparent to Jon Stewart and the writers of The Daily Show that the world was about to end, they embarked on a massive mission to write a book that summed up the human race: What we looked like; what we accomplished; our achievements in society, government, religion, science and culture -- all in a tome of approximately 256 pages with lots of color photos, graphs and charts.

    After two weeks of hard work, they had their book. Earth (The Book) is the definitive guide to our species. With their trademark wit, irreverence, and intelligence, Stewart and his team will posthumously answer all of life's most hard-hitting questions, completely unburdened by objectivity, journalistic integrity, or even accuracy.

    Woman, The Mink, The Cod and The Donkey

    Woman, The Mink, The Cod and The Donkey

    Swash, Margerie
    $14.99

    Come, dearest reader, and dive into this book. It's warm and safe in here, which you will have guessed already because it's about a human and three animals. You might not be able to remember the animals or the order they fall within the title, but that doesn't matter. The pictures will remind you that the story is about a woman, a mink, a cod and a donkey. Let us tell you a bit more about them...

    The woman is embarking on an important journey. She does not know her destination, but she knows what she'll find when she gets there: an open pub. It has been a long time since she has been in one due to a strange, sad region of yester-year called 'Lockdown'.

    On her travels she finds a mink. The mink is wise because he's known the cruelties of life, having been maligned because Danish minks were found to be spreading Coronavirus. The woman helps the mink forget the cruelties of life through something as old as time itself: love. The mink helps the woman withstand the journey to the pub through something else as old as time itself: wine.

    As they wander on their quest, a cod and a random donkey tag along, and together they discuss their most valued life lessons, such as the value of travel insurance, and why it's always important to wear breathable pants.
