Product Details

Praise

“I got to read an early copy of Here for It, and I chortled on pretty much every page but I was also moved. . . . He’s one of the funniest writers on this internet. Thank you, Maestro.”—Lin-Manuel Miranda

“This book was a lovely gift of hope and hysterical wit that kept me warm during the apocalypse. I laughed. I cried. I wish I would have written it myself.”—Jenny Lawson, New York Times bestselling author of You Are Here and Furiously Happy

Here for It is Thomas at his finest: funny, clever, thoughtful, and compelling. I’m glad the world will not only get to experience more of Thomas’s talent, but another much-needed story from another gay Black man in America.”—Michael Arceneaux, New York Times bestselling author of I Can’t Date Jesus: Love, Sex, Family, Race, and Other Reasons I’ve Put My Faith in Beyoncé

“A laugh-out-loud memoir that is strongly recommended for everyone.”Library Journal (starred review)

“If you’ve read Eric’s column you already know that he’s ten times funnier than your funniest friend. With Here for It, he proves that he’s so much more than that: observant, wise, and a singular, necessary voice.”—Grant Ginder, author of The People We Hate at the Wedding and Honestly, We Meant Well

“Here For It is a blockbuster and R. Eric Thomas is a visionary. This collection moved me from laughter to tears and back to laughter again in the span of a single page.”—Kristen Arnett, New York Times bestselling author of Mostly Dead Things

“Hilarious, revelatory, hopeful, incisive—Here for It feels like splitting dessert with your funniest friend, if that friend was also your smartest professor and a devastatingly sharp pop culture historian.”—Casey McQuiston, New York Times bestselling author of Red, White & Royal Blue

“If I were stocking a time capsule to show future generations how it felt to be alive at this exact moment in American culture, this is the book I’d toss in first. Readers of all stripes will relate to Thomas’s hilarious, touching observations on love, success, and identity.”—Mary Laura Philpott, author of I Miss You When I Blink

“With humor, candor, and some self-deprecation, Thomas, a playwright and Elle columnist, delivers a debut essay collection that explores his search for self, love, and stable employment.…Whether dealing with love, breakups, or other setbacks, Thomas is an affable narrator with a penchant for pop culture, funny quips, and charming humility.”Publishers Weekly

Here for It is Thomas at his finest: funny, clever, thoughtful, and compelling. I’m glad the world will not only get to experience more of Thomas’s talent, but another much-needed story from another gay Black man in America.”—Michael Arceneaux, New York Times bestselling author of I Can’t Date Jesus: Love, Sex, Family, Race, and Other Reasons I’ve Put My Faith in Beyoncé

“Every book says on the jacket that it is a razor-sharp tour de force, but this actually is a razor-sharp tour de force, with an enormous heart to boot. R. Eric Thomas is funny, smart, big-hearted, and wise. I started laughing on the first line of the first page and have not stopped. My pores are now clearer, my blood pressure lower, and ten years have been added to my lifespan. Please give yourself the gift of reading this book.”Alexandra Petri, Washington Post
