Good Things Happen to People You Hate: Essays

Good Things Happen to People You Hate: Essays

Former Senior Editor for Gothamist Rebecca Fishbein's adult life has been a dramatic reflection of New York media itself-constantly evolving in unexpected ways and seemingly always on the edge of disaster. In short, Rebecca has seen it all-from 3 bedbug infestations, to being fired, to being yelled at while working at American Apparel, to losing all her stuff in a freak fire, to being bullied online by angry Taylor Swift fans.

But the real humor and meat of the collection come from Rebecca's unwavering honesty and unflinching examination of her struggles with alcohol, anxiety, depression, compulsive lying, female beauty standards, and a slew of failed cowoker/roommate/friend semi-relationships are dark, insightful, and hilarious.

As Jia Tolentino commented, the era of the personal essay ended with the election-this is not your grandmother's millennial essay collection. Rebecca's writing is relatable without being preachy and conveys a message of resilience by example, not by moral. Readers will recognize the world they themselves see-a disastrous president and a scary socioeconomic landscape-in Becca's writing and find comfort in her humor and a snarky but incisive friend in her writing.
