"Charming. Brave. Hilariously honest. Whether you buy this book for yourself, your favorite introvert, or the chatty friend you're hoping to shut up for a few solid hours, you can't go wrong with Jessica Pan's revealing and delightful memoir."
(David Litt, New York Times bestselling author of Thanks, Obama)
"This book is a rollicking, hilarious delight. Jessica Pan's sense of humor as she stumbles (and sometimes triumphs) in a world of extroverts is sure to appeal to introverts everywhere. The only downside is that her book about going out and meeting new people is sure to make you stay home until you finish it."
(Jennifer Wright, author of Get Well Soon and Killer Fashion)
"Sorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come is a funny and poignant tale. I loved spending time with Jessica Pan in the pages of this book. I promise to never approach or contact her in real life."
(A.J. Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author of The Year of Living Biblically)
"Sorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come achieves what so many books claim (but then frankly fail) to do: making you laugh, while at the same time managing to inspire. Pan is a gem, and her introvert's exploration of extroversion is all at once delightful and deftly rendered."
(Sara Barron, author of The Harm in Asking)
"Our Favorite Nonfiction of the Year (So Far)" (Book Riot)
"Sorry I'm Late is much more personal, colloquial and intimate than other books in this bashful little genre, but it offers many of the same messages: shy people are not alone; connection is everything; being extroverted can be fun; but sometimes, curling up alone with a good book is really perfectly fine." (The Guardian)
"Very funny, very smart" (Liberty Hardy on the Book Riot's For Real podcast)
"I loved it! It's such a wonderful title, and the book lives up to it."
(Nigella Lawson, bestselling author of At My Table)
