*Sad Janet

*Sad Janet

A whip-smart black comedy for fans of Fleabag and My Year of Rest and Relaxation


Named one of the Best Books of the Summer by LitHub, The Millions, Refinery29, and Hey Alma.

Meet Janet. Janet is sad.

Not about her life, about the world. Have you seen it these days?The thing is, she's not out to make anyone else sad. She's not turning up to weddings shouting that most marriages end in divorce.

She just wants to wear her giant coat, get rid of her passive-aggressive boyfriend, and avoid human interaction at the rundown dog shelter where she works. That is, until word spreads about a new pill that promises cynics like her one day off from being sad. When her family stages an intervention, and the prospect of making it through Christmas alone seems like too much, Janet finally decides to give them what they want.

What follows is life-changing for all concerned - in ways no one quite expects. Hilarious, provocative and profound, Sad Janet is the antidote to our happiness-obsessed world.
