“One of the most charming exports to the American comedy scene is Irish writer Maeve Higgins. . . . Higgins’s vibe [is] wary but hopeful, clever but earnest. [The] sensibility [that] runs through: deep empathy and genuine curiosity about the American experience of newcomers . . . with more Michael Fassbender jokes, and a bit more self-deprecating humor (stop, Maeve, you’re perfect).”
—Maris Kreizman, Vulture (New Paperbacks You Should Read This August)
