Bad Vibes Only | Book by Nora McInerny | Official Publisher Page | Simon & Schuster


In a series of essays that span her childhood to the present, Nora introduces us to her mind and her world while inviting us to closely observe our own. We meet the people that challenge, question, and make Nora reflect on her own life, habits, and personality: her children, and their homework meltdowns, job searches, and online personalities; her college friend Kathleen, who now lives as a cloistered nun; and her uncle, a philosopher who has never used the internet (gasp!). Nora celebrates the joys and challenges of a blended family, and the surprises brought to bear by her approaching “early” middle age.

BAD VIBES ONLY is not only a response to a society that tells us to live, laugh, and love—it’s a reminder that in a world where we are more connected to and observed by our peers than ever before, we still deserve the freedom to
be ourselves.
