Product Details


“Tara Schuster is a phenomenal storyteller—a woman who insisted on reclaiming her agency to shine in bleak circumstances. Glow in the F*cking Dark is a revealing and powerful book that lit me up from the inside out.”—Glennon Doyle, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Untamed, founder of Together Rising, and host of We Can Do Hard Things

“Healing takes effort—and we can’t do it alone. In Glow in the F*cking Dark, Tara Schuster guides us along as she finds her way through her own pain and offers honest, often funny, and actionable advice for taking charge of your emotional health.”—Lori Gottlieb, New York Times bestselling author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone and co-host of the podcast Dear Therapists

“Tara Schuster has done something remarkable: She’s written a guide to facing the slings and arrows of life that’s both delightfully irreverent and disarmingly earnest. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you might just come away stronger and better.”—Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and host of the TED podcast WorkLife

Glow in the F*cking Dark proves that Tara Schuster is a modern-day guru for people who really hate gurus. Ruthlessly authentic and bitingly hilarious, Schuster takes us on a roller coaster of self-discovery, revealing that we are all the student and the teacher on our own paths to growth and healing.”—Melissa Urban, co-founder of Whole30 and #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Whole30 and The Book of Boundaries

“Former Comedy Central exec Schuster follows up Buy the F*cking Lilies with an upbeat plan for readers to become more confident versions of themselves. Blending witty personal anecdotes and ample doses of wisdom, Schuster urges readers to surpass their ‘good-enough plateau’ and ‘unleash [their] inner glow.’. . . Her stories are candid and funny, and her chatty tone keeps the narrative moving. Readers will be charmed by Schuster’s honesty and humor.”—Publishers Weekly
“[Tara] Schuster organizes her ideas into easy-to-follow steps (each chapter ends with a bite-sized ‘Little Thing That Helps’) and also provides funny, self-deprecating anecdotes—e.g., the time she gave herself an allergic reaction eating a self-imposed raw-beet-and-kale diet during an online meditation retreat. The author doesn’t shy away from her darkest moments, writing about her troubled relationship with her father or her struggle with suicidal thoughts, which can ‘make you feel full-body sick, like your insides are going to leap out of your skin or, sometimes, like every muscle is paralyzed. It’s an excruciating kind of agony that you want to end at all costs.’ An approachable, exuberant combination of memoir and self-help.”—Kirkus Reviews
