Sloane CrosleyHow Did You Get This Number

Sloane Crosley, the author of the sensational bestseller I Was Told There’d Be Cake, reads from and discusses her new book of personal essays How Did You Get This Number. In Crosley’s first book, readers were introduced to the foibles of Crosley’s life in New York City and to a literary voice that mixed Dorothy Parker with David Sedaris and became something all its own. In her new book, her voice is still fueled by the perfect witticism, buoyant optimism, flair for drama, and easy charm, but it has also become increasingly sophisticated, quicker and sharper to the point, more complex and lasting in the emotions it explores. And yet, Crosley remains the unfailingly hilarious young Everywoman, healthily equipped with intelligence and poise to fend off any potential mundanity in maturity.

($24.95) Riverhead ISBN #978-1-59448-759-0. You can visit Sloane Crosley’s official web site as well.
