Nothing Is Wrong and Here Is Why Summary

Nothing Is Wrong and Here Is Why: Essays by Alexandra Petri

In Nothing Is Wrong and Here Is Why, acclaimed The Washington Post satirist Alexandra Petri offers perfectly logical, reassuring reasons for everything that has happened in recent American politics and culture that will in no way unsettle your world view.

In essays both new and adapted from her viral columns, Petri reports that the Trump administration is as competent as it is uncorrupted, white supremacy has never been less rampant and men have been silenced for too long. Q-Anon makes perfect sense! At the centre of the book is a virtuosic account of the past four years, a history as surreal and deranged as the Trump administration itself. This Panglossian venture into the swampy present will soothe- and terrify readers.

Nothing Is Wrong and Here Is Why Reviews

[F]antastical, sharp...combines the rhetorical flourishes of Daniel M. Lavery with the best instincts of Gawker-esque internet snark. It's a delightful book.--Emma Sarappo
[Petri is] a fresh and prolific voice, someone who [is] able to make the painful reality of our current sociopolitical dumpster fire not just very, very funny, but stingingly poignant.--Julie Klam
Petri's gift is putting just enough breathing room between us and reality that we're able to let that laugh out.--Joanna Scutts
We all have that one friend who has the rare ability to make us laugh....even under the direst of circumstances. A friend whose dry wit, touching on everything from electoral politics to women's equality, is more than just banter: It also punctuates intellectual points and helps frame opinions. That's what it feels like to read Alexandra Petri's new book.--Tiffany D. Cross
[B]rilliant and wry...Petri hilariously roasts the last five years in American culture.... A stress-reducing belly laugh, and assurance that creative writing's role in interpreting culture hasn't been lost in these uncertain times.
[A] superb and stinging collection of new and previously published pieces. . . Acidic and spot-on, Petri's work captures the surreal quality of Trump's tenure as perhaps no other book has.
Alexandra Petri makes me fall off my sofa laughing at things that would ordinarily send me into a suicidal depression. The miracle satirist for an unsatirizable era.--Emily Nussbaum, Pulitzer Prize-winning culture critic
