Picador True Tales

Picador True Tales is a new series of books in which reporters select short, candid, as-told-to, first-person narratives and curate them in fascinating anthologies. The stories you’ll discover within these books will be equal parts hilarious, wise, and heartbreaking&mdashbut always riveting&mdashand told by people from backgrounds as varied as the tales they tell.

THE ROOMMATES Author, Stephanie Wu, On the Characters in Her Book.

In Stephanie Wu's The Roommates, people of all ages reveal their disastrous, hilarious, and sometimes moving stories of making their best friend for life or lifelong nemesis. Learn what it's like to share a room in places as unusual as a thirty-person beach house, a billionaire's yacht, a reality show mansion, and a retirement hotel, and those as familiar as sleepaway camps, boarding schools, and college dorms. Put down your roommate's dirty dishes and passive-aggressive Post-it's for this eye-opening glimpse into how people live together in the modern age.
