Rage-In: Trolls and Tribulations of Modern Life
HeadStuff & Tara Flynn
The world is a mess and bestselling author and comedian Tara Flynn is raging. Well, sometimes. Mostly she’s shocked, bemused, irreverent and wondering where the kindness went. Depends on the week, really. ‘Rage-In’ is a collection of essays providing a personal look at our modern world. Written in Tara’s distinctive voice – conversational, witty and easy to read – we are guided through many of today’s major issues, be it Emperor Trump, Brexit, an imaginary bunker for the impending apocalypse, trolls, being a Feminazi, or how pastels are actually THE WORST. With humour and empathy – as well as the occasional bout of rage – Tara Flynn tackles modern life and wonders whether anger is really the best way to survive it.
