Worry Two brother-sister turned roommates, one a 28-year-old media executive, navigating an absurd world on the brink of disaster. The book has been described as a “Seinfeldian” novel of existentialism and brotherhood.

Worry It was released last week by Scribner and was described by the New York Times as “a brilliantly comic novel of young adult angst.”

Set in 2019, it centers on twenty-eight-year-old Jules Gold – anxious, artistically frustrated and Internet-obsessed – who is living alone in the apartment she once shared with the man she thought was her Will marry younger sister. Poppy crashes. Indefinitely. Poppy, a year and a half after a suicide attempt that only Jules knows about, searches for work and meaning in Brooklyn, while Jules spends her days hate-scrolling a feed of Mormon mom bloggers and waiting for life to happen. Spends in.

Then the hives that have troubled Poppy since childhood flare up. Jules’ uterus turns against her. Poppy brings home a dislocated rescue dog named Amy Klobuchar. The girls’ mother, a newly devout Messianic Jew, begins to fall into conspiracy theories just like Jules’s online mothers. Jules, half-heartedly struggling to access the source of her wisdom, gently and cruelly blames Poppy for her inadequacies as a friend, a writer, and a sister. And Amy Klobuchar may have rabies. As the year winds down and a new decade approaches, a disastrous trip to Florida forces Jules and Poppy – comrades, competitors, constant fixtures in each other’s lives – to ask themselves why. How do they want their future to be, and whether they’ll spend it together or apart.

Big Beach’s Tim Foley said, “We fell in love with Alexandra’s eccentric voice from the first sentence, and we couldn’t stop laughing as these modern girls navigated their way toward adulthood and family in New York City. The book somehow manages to be completely original and familiar simultaneously. The show will be about a dysfunctional family and big important themes: competition, identity, the search for meaning. It’ll also be about getting stoned with your sister and staring at the Internet for so long you think you’re your ex.”
