The Witches Are Coming

From the moment powerful men started falling to the #MeToo movement, the lamentations began: this is feminism gone too far, this is injustice, this is a witch hunt. In The Witches Are Coming, firebrand author of the New York Times bestselling memoir and now critically acclaimed Hulu TV series Shrill, Lindy West, turns that refrain on its head. You think this is a witch hunt? Fine. You've got one.

“In this time of great frustration, this collection is a clearing in the woods to meet, to reflect, to dance, and to cackle around the fire." —Abbi Jacobson, creator of Broad City and New York Times bestselling author of I Might Regret This

“One of our foremost thinkers on gender unveils her unifying theory of America: that our steady diet of pop culture created by and for embittered, entitled white men has stoked our sociopolitical moment.” —Esquire.com

“GET ME A BROOM.” —Samantha Irby, New York Times bestselling author of We're Never Meeting in Real Life


Shrill

From a painfully shy childhood in which she tried, unsuccessfully, to hide her big body and even bigger opinions; to her public war with stand-up comedians over rape jokes; to her struggle to convince herself, and then the world, that fat people have value; to her accidental activism and never-ending battle royale with Internet trolls, Lindy narrates her life with a blend of humor and pathos that manages to make a trip to the abortion clinic funny and wring tears out of a story about diarrhea.

“A triumphant, exacting, absorbing memoir” Booklist (starred review)

“Required reading.” Publishers Weekly

“One of the most notable voices on the internet.” Flavorwire

“Lindy West can take almost any topic and write about it in a way that is smart, funny, warm, and unique.” Bustle
