ABOUT SONGS OF MY SELFIE:
With fresh new voices and edgy prose, seventeen stories by millennial writers offer a cross-section of vibrant young characters: unemployed grads deep in debt, expectant mothers on the cusp of adulthood, online relationship addicts, and twenty-somethings at war with their families’ expectations. Here are the strong and the weak, the self-aware and those who reject reality—all carefully crafted to buck the common perception of this generation.
“For once in your life, celebrate your millennial spirit and dive into the stories of your peers with Songs of My Selfie. From college grads in debt, to teen mothers, to Tinder addicts...they have it all. You can learn something from your fellow millennials and maybe even see yourself in some of them.” —Astral & Opal
“Doing for “bad Millennials” what Bad Feminist did for uncertain feminists, Songs of My Selfie celebrates the Millennial stereotypes — flaws and all . . . this story collection not only stands up for Millennials, it gives Millennials a place to stand up for themselves.” —Bustle
"Who better to write about millennials than millennials? This modern and hilariously refreshing anthology series is composed of stories by edgy new writers who completely capture the plight of millennials today." —Buzzfeed
