As a barely employed, Ivy League-educated, 6’1” Jewish woman in her thirties who lives at home with her parents, Anna Goldfarb has trouble meeting guys. Besides being overeducated and underemployed, Anna is a “late bloomer” with a penchant for hooking up with shorter dudes (anyone north of 5’7”, Anna is not interested) and she’s unfortunately impressed by “the worst things ever,” so navigating the minefield of dating does not come easy to her. With her unique voice and witty humor, Philadelphia-based blogger Anna Goldfarb shares the hysterical and mortifying situations she has found herself in as she moves back home, puts up with her overbearing Jewish mother who has the local police on speed dial, and tries to grow up all while trying to meet a cute, shorter dude who doesn’t kill her boner.
