A mechanic milks a cow, a recluse walks outside for the first time in three weeks, two teenagers watch tennis on mute, a grown man drinks a juice box in his underwear ― all of these moments strike the artful balance between intellectual acuity and lighthearted absurdity, establishing Toddy Smith and Darren Nuzzo as the new literary voices to listen to, laugh with and follow.

At times it will feel like you’re scrolling through Twitter or two drinks in at a comedy club; other times it will feel like you’re at the public library or your local art gallery. You’ll find characters you want to hug and ones you hope never to meet again. From light and humorous to sad and dark, the book captures the times we’re living in now while paying respect to the works that came before.

Driven by the diary entries of best friends Toddy Smith and Darren Nuzzo, this book is the result of two old-souled writers creating art in the internet age, heavily rooted in literature, yet shaped by the 21st century.

A work of art. ‪I don’t know why I’m so emotional reading this book.Maybe it’s because I know them; we’ve shared conversations and I’ve witnessed this project come to life. I anticipated its release with them and i counted down the days for them.Their words are hitting me deeper than my darkest wounds. ‬it’s a pain I love and want to feel even though it will leave me weak.I’m jealous of myself right now, I’ll never get to read this for the first time again, but I vow to cherish…
