Meaty, originally published by Giron, was chosen by Barnes & Noble as part of its Discover Great New Writers Program. It is not only being republished by Vintage and Anchor Books, it is also the basis for a new FX series, with Irby as a co-creator alongside Abbi Jacobson of Broad City and Jessi Klein, writer for Inside Amy Schumer.
Irby’s second book of essays—We are Never Meeting in Real Life—was a New York Times bestseller. Indeed, it was praised by author Roxanne Gay as “close to perfect as an essay collection can get.”
