Manipulators, liars, egomaniacs, bullies, interrupters, condescenders, ice queens, backstabbers, hypocrites, withholders, belligerents, self-deceivers, whiners, know-it-alls, nitpickers: these are some of the characters you’ll encounter in Difficult People. As these characters fumble through their quests for freediving fame, stand-up glory, romantic love, stable employment or anyone who can tolerate them, they reveal that we are all, in our own ways, difficult people.
“A remarkably brave, sexy, sophisticated collection fueled by brilliant language and wicked humor.”
– Barbara Gowdy, author of Little Sister
“Deft, dark and unflinching, Catriona Wright’s work is stand-up comedy for the mind.”
– Emily Schultz, author of The Blondes
