The cover via The Man Repeller
Leandra Medine's Man Repeller blog now comes in essay form—that's right, actual print. It's called "Man Repeller: Seeking Love. Finding Overalls." is now available for pre-order for the low, low price of $14.60 at Amazon.com.
There's no preview available, but at least Joan Rivers approves. Her review reads, "Not only do I agree with how Leandra dresses, but I also agree with everything she says in these brilliant stories. She's a terrific writer." But if that's not doing anything for you, find Medine's own reasons that you should read the book whether you love her or hate her. There are two.
And, look, I'm not going to tell you that you have to read it but I am going to say that you should. Why? Because (1) if you already hate me, it will fuel those emotions, thus making you a more passionate individual than you were previously. (2) There are stories about all kinds of weird things like seer sucker bermuda shorts and the ankle length white socks I forgot to take off the first time I was engaged in sexual intercourse.You can pre-order today, and expect it on September 10 from Amazon.
