After graduating college with a drink in one hand and a degree in the other, Alida Nugent was ready for the supportive, predictable embrace of “the real world.” She didn’t expect to be buried under a pile of student loan debt, laundry, and two-dollar bottles of wine, all of which pointed to the sinking realization that she had no idea what she was doing. In Don’t Worry, It Gets Worse, Nugent shares what it takes to make the awkward leap from wide-eyed undergrad to “mature and responsible adult that definitely never eats peanut butter straight from the jar and considers it a meal.” From trying to find an apartment on the black hole otherwise known as Craigslist to the imaginative financial finagling required to pay off student loans and still enjoy happy hour, Nugent documents the formative moments of being a twentysomething with a little bit of snark and a lot of heart. Perfect for fans of HBO’s Girls and Allie Brosh’s Hyperbole and a Half, Don’t Worry, It Gets Worse brings the best aspects of Nugent’s blog—The Frenemy—to the page as a love note to boozin’, bitchin’ ladies everywhere.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Warm, funny slices of postcollegiate life, including amusing and helpful bits of advice from a very real person.” Time Out New York
“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
“A bracing whiskey shot of a book. Equal parts hilarious and tender, Don’t Worry, It Gets Worse will have you laughing out loud on one page, and tearing up ever so slightly on the next. Alida Nugent is wise beyond her years.” Meghan Laslocky, author of The Little Book of Heartbreak
“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
Don’t Worry, It Gets Worse is the equivalent of spending an evening out with your funniest friend. Nugent keeps you laughing from start to finish—even her asides are gems.” Rachel Dratch, Saturday Night Live alum
