About the Author

Mary Laura Philpott, author of the national bestseller I Miss You When I Blink, writes essays that examine the overlap of the absurd and the profound in everyday life. Her writing has been featured frequently by The New York Times and appears in such outlets as The Washington Post, The Atlantic, Real Simple, and more. A former bookseller, she also hosted an interview program on Nashville Public Television for several years. Mary Laura lives in Nashville, Tennessee, with her family.


Mary Laura Philpott is relentlessly funny, self-effacing, and charming as she tells the story of living as a triple-A-plus perfectionist.

Mary Laura Philpott is a writer, artist, and creator of singular spark and delight. I adore her, and I love her work. Thank God she has finally written a memoir! By offering these dispatches from her own life experience, she leaves us thinking about ourselves-where we've been, where we're going, and who we really want to be.

-- "Elizabeth Gilbert, #1 New York Times bestselling author"

Infinitely relatable. Beautifully written. I'm ready to read it again.

-- "Jenny Lawson, New York Times bestselling author"

Mary Laura Philpott is the friend you call when you want to cry but need to laugh. What a treat to spend time with her distinctive voice as she plumbs life's quotidian moments to unearth deeper, universal truths. Wry, intelligent, and searingly honest, this book is a joy.
