Wall Street Journal columnist and New York Times bestselling author Jason Gay takes a humorous and insightful look at life in the face of a seemingly overwhelming series of ongoing societal changes and phenomena that we never anticipated, exploring the effects on parenthood, marriage, friendship, work, play, and all aspects of the strange lives we find ourselves living.

Like many of us, Jason Gay didn’t see this coming: a reshaped world, on edge, often stuck at home, questioning everything, trying to navigate a digital landscape that changes how we think, parent, coach, and live. With a series of topical and interconnected personal pieces, Gay comically takes on this new state of being, looking for the optimism and joy in the face of discouragement. He embarks on a rowdy ride with his son to the Daytona 500, weeks before lockdown. He confides his hilariously banal texts with his wife. He allows his mom to kidnap the family cat. From the modest thrills of Little League parenting to reckoning with the impending death of a close friend, Gay’s essays run the gamut of modern life and he approaches it all with humility, grace, and more than a few laughs.
