America the Anxious- out in paperback tomorrow! (10th October)

Excited to announce that America the Anxious comes out in paperback tomorrow, (10th October 2017.) You can pre-order it here.

The book was a New York Post Best Book of 2016, a New York Times Editors Choice, a Sunday Times Top Summer Read and a Daily Mail Must Read. Here’s some of what people have had to say about it:

“Ruth Whippman is my new favorite cultural critic, her book was such a joy to read that I temporarily forgot my own neuroses”- Adam Grant, author of Originals, Give and Take and Option B with Sheryl Sandberg.

“I haven’t enjoyed cultural criticism this much since David Foster Wallace’s A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again.  Reading this book is like touring America with a scary smart friend who keeps elbowing you in the ribs and saying “are you seeing what I’m seeing?”- Heather Havrilesky, New York magazine columnist and author of How to Be a Person in the World.

“a beautifully written, important book”- Psychology Today

“Ruth Whippman is whip-smart, her writing is nothing short of genius”- Huffington Post.

You can order a copy here, or in any good bookshop.
