"What I’m waiting for is a writer who understands the complexities and nuances of trying to be a person both on and in spite of the internet; for the kind of writing that gives its readers the expansive, resonant relief of understanding and being understood, of being chastised, forgiven, and encouraged to do better all at once." Hey... Emma? Emma, I think you are that writer. Or at least, for me you are. Please write more. Thank you.

Ahh I am an intern doing intern-y things right now! I want that leopard-print cardigan but realized it is still slightly out of my intern allowance.

Esther, you cannot do that. You cannot say you solved chafing and not tell us how.

I sort of expected No More Nice Girls to read as sort of a relic? It does not. Be prepared though, because you will be dying to read almost every sentence aloud to someone and that gets annoying even if Ellen Willis is right about everything (except Freud).
