Publisher's Summary

From Cat Marnell, author of the New York Times best-selling memoir How to Murder Your Life, an irresistibly candid and magical travelogue of soul-seeking and self-healing

The spring of 2017 should have been the greatest time of Cat Marnell’s life. She was 34 and living the New York glamour life downtown, with a thriving career and a best-selling memoir. Instead, it was one of the worst. She’d gone through a protracted and traumatic breakup, nearly run out of money, and, during a month-long binge, "done something horrible" to herself that she couldn’t undo.

Her troubles mounting, Marnell makes a radically simple choice: She decides to leave her problems behind. She puts her belongings into storage and uses the last of her book advance to buy a one-way plane ticket to Europe. For the next four months, Marnell is a woman on the move. With nothing but a suitcase (Sammy) and a bag of wigs to her name, and no agenda other than to follow her heart (and maybe the Libertines' Pete Doherty), Marnell embarks on a profound personal journey, from late-night "Wizard Walks" in mysterious cities to almost drowning in a river - all while learning to face down her demons.

Whimsical, infectious, and utterly life-affirming, Self-Tanner for the Soul reminds us all of the life-changing magic of running away.

Privileged Trash

This is potentially the worst thing I have ever read / listened to. I’m not even sure what it’s supposed to be. Travel writing? You don’t learn ANYTHING about anywhere she’s been, except how “dope” Europe is. The writing is repetitive, her voice is annoying. There is nothing good here. I don’t know HOW I finished this, but I want my life back.

Adventures of a free spirit

I didn’t know what to expect when I began this book but within the first few paragraphs I was mesmerized by Cat’s writing. She tells the tale of her travels through Europe with humour and fun which bring to life her adventures, these stretch from floating out to sea and wizard walks to losing her bank cards. I was disappointed to finish.
