What would happen if a shy introvert lived like a gregarious extrovert for one year?

Publisher Description

What would happen if a shy introvert lived like a gregarious extrovert for one year? If she knowingly and willingly put herself in perilous social situations that she'd normally avoid at all costs? Jessica Pan is going to find out.

When she found herself jobless and friendless, sitting in the familiar Jess-shaped crease on her sofa, she couldn't help but wonder what life might have looked like if she had been a little more open to new experiences and new people, a little less attached to going home instead of going to the pub.

So, she made a vow- to push herself to live the life of an extrovert for a year. She wrote a list- improv, a solo holiday and... talking to strangers on the tube. She regretted it instantly.

Sorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come follows Jess's hilarious and painful year of misadventures in extroverting, reporting back from the frontlines for all the introverts out there.

But is life actually better or easier for the extroverts? Or is it the nightmare Jess always thought it would be?

Review

"Tender, courageous and extremely funny, this book will make us all braver." -- Daisy Buchanan "Painfully hilarious" Red "In a world of self-care and nights in, this book will inspire and remind you to do some things that scare you every so often." -- Emma Gannon "A chronicle of Pan's hilarious and painful year of being an extrovert." Stylist "Absolutely bloody great. As a textbook, concrete, public changing, foghorn extrovert, I find Jessica Pan's descriptions of introversion and shyness fascinating and she is very funny." -- Nell Frizzell
