ALEXANDRA PETRI presents NOTHING IS WRONG AND HERE IS WHY: ESSAYS

June 10 @ 7:00 pm

$13 – $49

In Nothing Is Wrong and Here Is Why, acclaimed Washington Post satirist Alexandra Petri offers perfectly logical, reassuring reasons for everything that has happened in recent American politics and culture that will in no way unsettle your worldview.

In essays both new and adapted from her viral Post columns, Petri reports that the Trump administration is as competent as it is uncorrupted, white supremacy has never been less rampant, and men have been silenced for too long. Q-Anon makes perfect sense! Perhaps the abyss is staring back at you because your outfit looks extra nice today! At the center of the book is a virtuosic account of the past four years, a history as surreal and deranged as the Trump administration itself. This Panglossian venture into the swampy present will soothe— and terrify — readers who have died laughing to ClickHole, the Onion, Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart, or Veep.

Alexandra Petri is an American humorist and newspaper columnist at the Washington Post. She lives in Washington DC.
