What to expect

Brought to you by Penguin.

Daniel Sloss’s stand-up comedy engages, enrages, offends, unsettles, educates, comforts, and gets audiences roaring with laughter – all at the same time. In his groundbreaking specials, seen on Netflix and HBO, he has brilliantly tackled everything from male toxicity and friendship to love, romance, and marriage – and claims (with the data to back it up) that his on-stage laser-like dissection of relationships has single-handedly caused more than 300 divorces and 120,000 breakups.

Now, in his first book, he picks up where his specials left off, and goes after every conceivable kind of relationship – with one’s country (Sloss’s is Scotland); with America; with lovers, ex-lovers, ex-lovers who you hate, ex-lovers who hate you; with parents; with best friends (male and female), not-best friends; with children; with siblings; and even with the global pandemic and our own mortality. In Everyone You Hate Is Going to Die, every human connection gets the brutally funny (and unfailingly incisive) Sloss treatment as he illuminates the ways in which all of our relationships are fragile and ridiculous and awful – but also valuable and meaningful and important.

Critics Review

  • This is the Pandora’s Box of self-help books.

    Conan O'Brien
  • The only thing wrong with this book is that at my age everyone I hate is already dead.

    Peter Bart
  • What a book. It’s smart, acerbic, and incredibly funny. I suggest you read it.

    Bob Saget
  • [Sloss is] dirty, sweet and clever.

    The New York Times
  • He tells jokes that are transgressive, that are shocking, that are dark enough to emphasize that he’s not some kind of pious, soggy, joyless hector.
