Paperback
Harper Perennial | 336pgs
Release Date: July 27, 2010

Summary:
Performer and playwright Rachel Shukert recounts her experiences and misadventures during a coming of age tour of Europe in the witty Everything Is Going to Be Great: An Underfunded and Overexposed European Grand Tour. With a freshly minted acting degree from NYU, Shukert wins a role as an extra in a play booked on a European tour. An error in customs leaves her passport unstamped, allowing her to travel freely throughout Vienna, Zurich and Amsterdam, experiencing booze, boys and culture shock in transit. Written in a style that Entertainment Weekly‘s Tina Jordan describes as “a cross between David Sedaris and Chuck Palahniuk”, Shukert’s irreverent observations offer an entertaining portrait of a young woman finding her way to adulthood.

What critics are saying:
Everything Is Going to Be Great is the second book from writer and comedian Shukert. Her first book Have You No Shame?: And Other Regrettable Stories, published in 2008, was well received by critics. Early editorial reviews have been very favorable for Shukert’s sophomore effort. A Kirkus review declares the book: “An entertaining and often laugh-out-loud – though not altogether atypical – story of soul-searching abroad.”
