The Obstacle Is the Way meets F*ck Feelings meets How Proust Can Change Your Life, this darkly inspiring self-help book appeals to the thousands of fans with an undying obsession for Edgar Allan Poe and draws deeply on Poe's works to deliver unexpected advice on persevering and finding success despite the odds.

Of all the writers anywhere, Poe might be the least likely person you'd ever turn to for advice. His life was a complete dumpster fire: he married his cousin; got fired from one job after another; constantly feuded with friends and rivals; and he was always broke. But that's also precisely the point. Though Poe failed again and again, he also persevered.

Drawing deeply on his works and life, Catherine Baab-Muguira takes the familiar image of Poe in a new and surprising direction in this darkly inspiring self-help book. Despite what you might think, Edgar Allan Poe is the perfect person to teach you to say "Nevermore, problems!" and show you how to use all the terrible situations, tough breaks, bad luck, and even your darkest emotions in novel and creative ways to make a name for yourself and carve out your own unique, notorious place in the world.

An inspirational tale for black sheep everywhere, Poe for Your Problems will teach you how to overcome life's biggest challenges to succeed at work, love, and art-despite the odds and no matter your flaws.
