'Instagram's answer to David Sedaris.' ST STYLE MAGAZINE

'Irresistibly readable' DOLLY ALDERTON

'You'll laugh. You'll cry.' LENA DUNHAM

A hilarious, smart and incredibly singular debut from Raven Smith, whose exploration of the minutiae of everyday modern life and culture is totally unique and painfully relatable.

Is being tall a social currency? Am I the contents of my fridge? Does yoga matter if you're not filthy rich? Is a bagel four slices of bread? Are three cigarettes a meal?

From IKEA meatballs to minibreaks, join Raven Smith as he reflects on the importance we place in the least important things and our frivolous attempts to accomplish and attain. He also tackles his single-parent upbringing, his struggles as a lonely teenager and his personal experience of coming out.

Packed with brilliant humour, great tenderness and lingering pathos, Raven Smith's Trivial Pursuits is a book for anyone who has ever asked 'when I get to the pearly gates of heaven, will a viral tweet count for or against my entry?'
