A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
From the co-creator and co-star of the hit series Broad City, a hilarious and poignant collection about love, loss, work, comedy and figuring out who you really are when you thought you already knew.
When Abbi Jacobson announced to friends and acquaintances that she planned to drive across the country alone, she was met with lots of questions and opinions: Why wasn't she going with friends? Wouldn't it be incredibly lonely? The North route is better! Was it safe for a woman? The Southern route is the way to go! You should bring mace! And a common one . . . why? But Abbi had always found comfort in solitude, and needed space to step back and hit the reset button. As she spent time in each city and town on her way to Los Angeles, she mulled over the big questions - What do I really want? What is the worst possible scenario in which I could run into my ex? How has the decision to wear my shirts tucked in been pivotal in my adulthood? In this collection of anecdotes, observations and reflections - all told in the sharp, wildly funny and relatable voice that has endeared Abbi to critics and fans alike - readers will feel like they're in the passenger seat on a fun and, ultimately, inspiring journey. With some original illustrations by the author.

As a passionate fan of Abbi Jacobson's comedy, it was no surprise to me that this book is hilarious, peculiar and very smart. But I was unprepared for the courage she shows in making herself vulnerable on these pages: Jacobson cracks herself open and explores love and loneliness, travel and independence, success and self-loathing. I wish I hadn't finished reading this . . . I miss her already -- Ariel Levy, New York Times-bestselling author of The Rules Do Not Apply
Intimate and brave in a way her audience has yet to experience, I Might Regret This is a funny, vulnerable, generous and excruciatingly honest look at the beautiful heart that beats inside Abbi Jacobson -- Samantha Irby, New York Times bestselling author of We Are Never Meeting in Real Life and Meaty

Have you watched Broad City yet? If not, do: Comedians Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson might be the Lucy and Ethel of Gen Y. Jacobson, who recently drove cross-country alone, uses the more tender side of her humor in this delightful mash-up of an essay collection. She's worth the trip * Washington Post *
While asking many questions about adulthood--like what the impact of tucking in her shirt has had on her life - Abbi Jacobson infuses her sharp and witty voice to tell stories about loss, love and finding yourself * Time *
Part travelogue, part diary, you come for the delightful observations about road snacks and the life-changing magic of tucking in your shirt, and stay for the endearingly honest, quirky reflections on life, love, art, and work * Queerty *
Hilarious and cutting in equal measures, and relatable in so many ways * Cosmopolitan Best Books of 2018 *
Jacobson was seeking to establish a "small, meaningful connection with a stranger," and that's exactly what she did. And that is exactly what she's done here, with each one of her readers * New York Times *
Her pit stops, anecdotes and observations - the book is peppered with her illustrations of the records and podcasts she listens to in the car - feel like you are on that very road trip with her * Elle *
