Publisher Description

From the writer of Slate’s “Dear Prudence” column and “literally the funniest person on the internet” (Rachel Fershleiser, coeditor of the New York Times bestseller Not Quite What I Was Planning) comes a witty and clever collection of essays and cultural observations spanning pop culture—from the endearingly popular to the staggeringly obscure.

Sometimes you just have to yell. New York Times bestselling author of Texts from Jane Eyre Daniel Mallory Ortberg has mastered the art of “poetic yelling,” a genre surely familiar to fans of his cult-favorite website The Toast.

In this irreverent essay collection, Ortberg expands on this concept with in-depth and hilarious studies of all things pop culture, from the high to low brow. From a thoughtful analysis on the beauty of William Shatner to a sinister reimagining of HGTV’s House Hunters, Something That May Shock and Discredit You is a laugh-out-loud funny and whip-smart collection for those who don’t take anything—including themselves—much too seriously.

“Ortberg’s narration is undeniably powerful…One moment his voice scrapes raw; the next, it’s full of delight. He’ll have you laughing one moment and weeping the next. His voice swings from vulnerable to silly, tender to dry…Every moment of this audiobook is a joy to listen to. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
