Please Send Help
In Please Send Help, Gaby Dunn and Allison Raskin continue the hilarious and heartfelt story that they kicked off in their first co-authored novel I Hate Everyone But You. Best friends Ava and Gen are now fresh college graduates trying to get their careers started, with Ava interning in New York City and Gen working as a journalist in Florida. Their post-grad lives bring with them a new host of challenges, from awkward roommate relationships to kooky coworkers. In this new phase of life, their long-distance friendship is what gets them through.
Made up of text and email exchanges between Ava and Gen, the novel places its characters’ funny, honest voices at center stage. Reading Please Send Help is like eavesdropping on two of the funniest people you know and getting to see all the messy and hilarious parts of themselves they share only with the people they love most. The interactions between Ava and Gen feel real, not just in the moments of playful banter but also in the moments where the humorous absurdity turns into a deeper confrontation of stigma, censorship, or discrimination.
