Review By: Shana
Jessi Klein is a stand-up comic and a comedy writer. Part memoir, part musings on life, with the feel of a set of essays, Klein is (unsurprisingly) quite funny. She has the good comedienne's knack for finding the raw spot of vulnerability, ridiculousness, insecurity, or pain and making it humorous and, occasionally, uncomfortable.
From awkward and embarrassing admissions to the trials and tribulations of dating and body image, career moves and motherhood, Klein hits many of the topics that professional women of a certain age have tackled, doing so with wonderful balance of wit and self-deprecation.
My love of reading was sparked in 3rd grade by the promise of personal pan pizzas via the BOOK IT! Program. Hmmmm... any chance that someone might give adults free food for reading? Asking for a friend...
