With a drink in one hand and her newly-earned degree in the other, Alida Nugent thought she was ready to trade in all-night studying and parties for the real world. She found, though, that the post-graduate life didn’t offer much of the glamor she had imagined. In a pile of bills, laundry, and three-dollar bottles of wine, it was suddenly obvious that she had no idea what she was doing. Maybe no twentysomething does. Nugent shares her experience making the awkward journey from undergrad to “mature and responsible adult that definitely never eats peanut butter straight from the jar and considers it a meal” in this snarky, heart-felt memoir.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Humorous…[with] wickedly crafted insights.” New York Journal of Books
“Charming…Nugent is a confection of fabulosity, a sharp and hilarious mind that falls a little bit in love—and a little bit in hate—with the ridiculous world around her. Her observations on post-collegiate life are somehow both cutting and warm, and all the more wonderful for it. " Sara Barron, author of People Are Unappealing
Nugent’s voice comes across as loyal and tough, and her sense of humor and authenticity will appeal to readers going through related chapters in their own post-college lives. This book, like one of its myriad cocktails, is dry, dirty, and surprisingly refreshing.” Kirkus Reviews
