A celebration of curiosity, compassion, and the surprising power of fear, based on the New York Times bestselling author and renowned professor's 2015 commencement address at Syracuse University. "Being smart and rich are lucky, but being curious & compassionate will save your ass." Every year there are one or two commencement speeches that strike a chord with audiences far greater than the student bodies for which they are intended. In 2015 Mary Karr's speech to the graduating class of Syracuse University caught fire, hailed across the Internet as one of the most memorable in recent years, and lighting up the Twittersphere. In Now Go Out There, Karr explains why having your heart broken is just as?if not more?important than falling in love; why getting what you want often scares you more than not getting it; how those experiences that appear to be the worst cannot be so easily categorized; and how to cope with the setbacks that inevitably befall all of us. "Don't make the mistake of comparing your twisted up insides to other peoples blow-dried outsides," she cautions. "Even the most privileged person in this stadium suffers the torments of the damned just going about the business of being human. " An ideal and beautifully designed gift for a graduate or for anyone looking for some down-to-earth life advice, Now Go Out There is destined to become a classic.
