A charming yet scathing portrait of young adulthood at the opening of the twenty-first century, All the Sad Young Literary Men charts the lives of Sam, Mark, and Keith, as they overthink their college years, underthink their love lives, and struggle through the encouragement of the women who love and despise them to find a semblance of maturity, responsibility, and even literary fame.
At every turn, at each character's misstep, this assured debut radiates with comedic warmth and biting honesty and signals the arrival of a brave and trenchant new writer.
