Jess first meets Josh at their Ivy League college. He is an entitled white guy in chinos, ready to inherit the world. She is almost always the only Black woman in their class. And she’s not expecting to inherit anything.

After graduation, Jess and Josh end up working at the same bank. They share lunch, they share sparring matches, they share ambitions. And suddenly they’re sleeping together . . .

Cecilia Rabess' Everything's Fine is hilarious, heartbreaking and impossible to put down.

'Our most explosive discussion yet . . . The PERFECT book club book' – Casual Readers Book Club

*A Times 100 Best Books of the Summer and Guardian Book of the Year*

The book of the moment . . . It’s about whether it is ever possible for two people who fancy each other but profoundly disagree about everything that matters to have a happy relationship . . . It’s so good — funny, sexy, unafraid, brilliantly nuanced, completely unputdownable.
A stunning debut
Truly brilliant . . . incredible dialogue and characters so real that I felt preoccupied with them when I wasn't reading. I couldn't have loved it more
