Orli Auslander didn’t intend to write a book. After realizing she felt guilty, or “bad” as she puts it, Auslander began to document all the times she felt this way with drawings. She quickly realized that she “felt bad” almost all the time.
I Feel Bad: All Day. Every Day. About Everything. is a collection of poignant looks at thoughts that race through the minds of women all day long.
I Feel Bad: All Day. Every Day. About Everything. is intended to be funny, but there are times when the drawings hit a little too close. I hadn’t realized how many times a day we as women culturally feel bad about not being the perfect employee, mom, partner, etc. The book challenges one to sit down and write down all the times we feel bad and see how silly so many of them are when we are doing our best and being pulled in multiple directions.
I Feel Bad: All Day. Every Day. About Everything. is available from Blue Rider Press April 4, 2017.
