I Was Told There’d Be Cake, by Sloane Crosley

As soon as I finished the first chapter of I Was Told There’d Be Cake, I realized something:  Sloane Crosley was the friend from Long Island I never had in college.

Her humorous essays are very conversational, relateable, and then…they take a turn for the absurd.  I found myself smacking my forehead at her ditching the ponies, and groaning with recognition at her horrible boss. 

Picking up I Was Told There’d Be Cake is like having a blind-friend-date with someone you feel like you might strike up a conversation with on the subway home…if people actually DID that sort of thing.  (NOTE:  do not attempt to do that sort of thing.

I definitely enjoyed reading this collection of funny essays and want to pick up more!  Any good recommendations?
