“Diana Joseph has never chosen the path of least resistance, or the straight and narrow. She writes of her mistakes with candor, no regret, and a wry sense of humor that will resonate with all of us who has grown up to find that things haven't turned out the way we had imagined it. One couldn't ask for a better traveling companion.”

Description

An Entertainment Weekly "must"-"It's hard to recall another collection of essays, or a memoir, with more natural charm."

Surrounded by dysfunctional men-from her fourteen-year-old son to her high-maintenance boss-Diana Joseph did what she had to do: survive. I'm Sorry You Feel That Way is an honest, hilarious, and instantly recognizable memoir of a truly modern woman. Funny, fearless, and warmhearted, it is a portrait of a woman in all her endless complexities and contradictions, and of the people she has come to love in spite of-or rather because of-theirs.
