Trivial Grievances

Bridie Jabour

In the last days of 2019, journalist Bridie Jabour wrote a piece for The Guardian about the malaise of 31 year-old millennials and how the painful, protracted end of their adolescence is finally hitting home; they’re hitting their thirties and the vast majority are neither famous, award-winning or rich - and that’s making them miserable.

The article went viral overnight, the response from readers was overwhelming, and Bridie decided the time had come to write a book about her generation - those much-maligned millennials. After all, she reasoned, this generation is coming of age in a fairly unique set of social and economic circumstances, including precarious work, delayed baby-making, rising singledom, a pandemic, a heating planet, loss of religion and increased unstable housing. But much to her surprise, despite her assumption that this generation of 31-year-olds is the most miserable ever, she discovered that wasn’t the whole truth…

Forthright, funny, incisive, provocative and insightful, Trivial Grievances is truly a book for our times, and for every twenty- or thirty-something anxious about their place in the world.
