Praise for We're All Going To Die (Especially Me)

We're All Going to Die is like a series of late-night conversations with someone so smart, perceptive and wry, you're already secretly planning to make them be your new best friend.’ —Benjamin Law

‘[Meares is] a natural at mining his anxieties for wincing laughs.’ —Big Issue


‘Stylistically, Meares may well be the younger brother of David Sedaris … Like the rest of us mortals, Meares will, indeed, be dying at some stage, but he's determined to laugh a whole lot before then, and we will too, should we  go along for the ride.’ —Sunday Age


‘Walking the line between tiresome navel-gazing and insightful, rewarding revelations is tough, but with his debut book Sydney writer Joel Meares succeeds with style.’ —Weekend Australian


‘As an exploration of what it means to come to adulthood in Australia in the 2000s and 2010s, his work is unmatched … unashamedly real.’ —Herald Sun


‘Joel Meares is going to die at some point. It appears he’s not planning to take any secrets with him. Hilarious!’ —Annabel Crabb


‘A collection of bright, humorous personal essays ... The self-deprecation in this book isn’t of the needy, magical-thinking kind (if you see I am beating myself up, you won’t hit me). It’s about being comfortable without being smug.’ —Spectrum


‘Endearing’ —Country Style
