Two best friends document their post-college lives in a hilarious, relatable, and powerfully honest epistolary memoir.

Fast friends since they met at Brown University during their freshman
year, Jessica Pan and Rachel Kapelke-Dale vowed to keep in touch after
their senior year through in-depth—and brutally honest—weekly e-mails.
After graduation, Jess packs up everything she owns and moves to Beijing
on a whim, while Rachel heads to New York to work for an art gallery
and to figure out her love life. Each spends the next few years tumbling
through adulthood and reinventing themselves in various countries,
including France, China, and Australia. Through their messages from
around the world, they swap tales of teaching classes of military men,
running a magazine, and flirting in foreign languages, along with the
hard stuff: from harrowing accidents to breakups and breakdowns.

Reminiscent of Sloan Crosley’s essays and Lena Dunham’s Girls, GRADUATES IN WONDERLAND is an intimate, no-holds-barred portrait of two young women as they embark upon adulthood.
