Self-disgust and awkwardness: now 100% funnier

Self-disgust and awkwardness: now 100% funnier

Sometimes when I read another writer’s work, I’ll be struck by this surge of connectedness. Unfortunately, the writer I’m feeling all connected to is quite often a recluse, dead or otherwise inaccessible – but not this time! This time, my literary crush was sitting next to me at a birthday party, bantering about yabbies.

Her name is Kate Gallagher and she makes things like self-disgust, mundanity and awkwardness, fun. She’s like Lady Seinfeld but better, amped up and coming down all at the same time. She’s a woman of contrasts, just like her happy-sad artwork here. She’s real and relatable. She also made me do those snuffling-type snorts of surprised laughter long after I’d established that she was funny as fuck.
