Publisher's Summary

Best Book of 2021 by Esquire 

Book You Need to Read in 2021 by Harper’​s Bazaar 

“Darkly funny and glitteringly satirical, The Atmospherians unforgettably takes aim at wokeness, wellness, and toxic masculinity.” (Esquire)

This “edgy, addictive” (Kirkus Reviews, starred) satire about two best friends who form The Atmosphere — a cult designed to reform problematic men — is “a book to be devoured” (Vanity Fair).

Sasha Marcus was once the epitome of contemporary success: an internet sensation, social media darling, and a creator of a high-profile wellness brand for women. But a confrontation with an abusive troll has taken a horrifying turn, and now she’s at rock bottom: canceled and doxxed online, isolated in her apartment while men’s rights protestors rage outside. 

Sasha confides in her oldest childhood friend, Dyson — a failed actor with a history of body issues — who hatches a plan for her to restore her reputation by becoming the face of his new business venture, The Atmosphere: a rehabilitation community for men. Based in an abandoned summer camp and billed as a workshop for job training, it is actually a rigorous program designed to rid men of their toxic masculinity. Sasha has little choice but to accept. But what horrors await her as the resident female leader of a crew of washed up, desperate men? And what exactly does Dyson want?

Explosive, dazzling, and wickedly funny, The Atmospherians is “a book written with this exact cultural moment in mind” (Oprah Daily).

So much unfulfilled potential

Such a great idea for a story. Started out so well and then quickly became disappointing.
