Witty and Warm

Look Alive Out There: Essays - Sloane Crosley

Sloane Crosley’s latest collection of essays, Look Alive Out There, combines comical anecdotes with some more heartfelt and personal stories.  Crosley uses her sharp wit in describing her adventures as a typical New Yorker dealing with neighbor issues, a journalist stretched beyond her comfort zone in exotic locales, a guest on a popular television show, and a woman reckoning with fertility concerns. Some of the essays are funnier than others, but all might strike a chord of familiarity in those who use humor to cope with insecurity and life’s uncertainties.
