The Day I Turned Uncool: Confessions of a Reluctant Grownup


Sooner or later, each of us must face the day we develop a disturbing new interest in lawn care; the day we order sauvignon blanc instead of Rolling Rock; the day we refuse to see any concert where we cannot sit down. Sooner or later, each of us must face the day we turn uncool…


Tom Perrotta: “If Dan Zevin’s so uncool, how come he’s so funny? This is a witty, sharply observed book about the embarrassing compromises and guilty pleasures of adulthood.”

Booklist: “…These essays are an absolute comic treasure…”

Glamour: “…laugh out-loud…Growing up isn’t pretty, but in Zevin’s world, for both men and women, it’s pretty damn funny.”
