Available to Order (3-7 business days)


Welcome to your guidebook for living a life that doesn't make you want to throw up a partially-digested corn dog into the nearest public park trashcan.

A manual for making the best of squeezing dogs' anal glands for minimum wage.

And a huge, heaping handful of reassurance when you're ready to smack yourself and/or the nearest passerby with a raw fish because you don't know what you're doing, where you're headed, or what in the hell you actually want.*

*Besides a night in bed with a young Tom Selleck look alike. Let's be honest.

Think of it as having a life coach in your corner (and on your coffee table), assuming you like your life coaches like you like your pirates: soaked in liquor and perpetually spewing profanities. Peg legs, sadly, are not included.

Part essays, part stories & all soul, Please Validate My Existence is one twenty-something's take on what it means to approach life much in the same way you approach a game of Monopoly: with alarming amounts of determination and a thick wad of fake paper money stuffed down the front of your pants.

Jessica Manuszak is the shouty mastermind behind the no-holds-barred Brazen Bible blog, a bustling hub on the internet for the dreamers. The doers. The occasional day-drinkers. And anyone who wants MORE out of life.

Because in case you haven't heard?

You only get one.
