Chloe Caldwell in conversation with Laura Goode about her new essay collection, I'll Tell You in Person.



Praise for Chloe Caldwell:


“Chloe Caldwell tells you all her secrets in a controlled mania so you can devour them in a more compulsive fashion. I couldn’t stop reading this book, and when I was finished I kept looking around to see where my awesome new friend went. She’s right in here, brimming with most excellent girldom, a commitment to experience that feels religious, a dedication to vulnerability that likewise radiates holy holy holy. I love this person’s life, and I love the way she writes about it—funny and blunt and chatty and truthful.”—Michelle Tea


“When she writes, a beautiful energy blazes off the page. This book kicked my ass, heart, and brain. It’s wildly entertaining and deeply loving. A heroic triumph in intrepid self-observation. A testament to the heights and depths the personal essay can reach. Chloe Caldwell shows how, in writing about ‘nothing,’ we can discover the everything. I am going to buy Women immediately.”—Emma Jane Unsworth


“I read this book in two breathless days, and basically all I want to do now is eat macaroni and cheese, day drink rosé, and harmonize with Chloe Caldwell. I want to be her friend.”—Samantha Irby



About I'll Tell You in Person:


Flailing in jobs; failing at love; getting addicted and unaddicted to people, food, and drugs—I’ll Tell You in Person is a candid and captivating account of attempts at adulthood and all the less-than-perfect ways we get there. Caldwell has an unsparing knack for looking within and reporting back what’s really there, rather than what she’d like you to see.
