Everyone You Hate Is Going to Die

£16.99

Daniel Sloss’s comedy engages, offends and makes people uncomfortable, and it is utterly hilarious – all at the same time. In this book, Sloss lays out his views on just about every conceivable kind of relationship between two people – with lovers, ex-lovers, ex-lovers who you hate, ex-lovers who hate you, parents, best friends (male and female), not-best friends, children and siblings – and even entire countries. Every relationship gets the full, inimitable Sloss treatment as he explains why each one is fragile and ridiculous and awful – but, just maybe, also valuable and meaningful.

Description

This is the Pandora’s Box of self-help books. – Conan O’Brien

Daniel Sloss’s stand-up comedy engages, enrages, offends, unsettles, educates, comforts, and gets audiences roaring with laughter – all at the same time. In his groundbreaking specials, seen on Netflix and HBO, he has brilliantly tackled everything from male toxicity and friendship to love, romance and marriage – and claims (with the data to back it up) that his on-stage laser-like dissection of relationships has single-handedly caused more than 300 divorces and 120,000 breakups.

Now, in his first book, he picks up where his specials left off, and goes after every conceivable kind of relationship – with one’s country (Sloss’s is Scotland); with America; with lovers, ex-lovers, ex-lovers who you hate, ex-lovers who hate you; with parents; with best friends (male and female), not-best friends; with children; with siblings; and even with the global pandemic and our own mortality.

In Everyone You Hate Is Going to Die, every human connection gets the brutally funny (and unfailingly incisive) Sloss treatment as he illuminates the ways in which all of our relationships are fragile and ridiculous and awful – but also valuable and meaningful and important.
