Publisher's Summary

Best known for her role on the hit Comedy Central show Strangers with Candy, Sarah Thyre is an accomplished actress and writer. In this snappy memoir about growing up poor in the Deep South, Thyre relays vivid memories of her wacky parents, losing her virginity, and being infamously called "the family liar."

What the Critics Say

"Thyre ... has penned a book that lives up to its title; it's both harrowing and hilarious." (Booklist, starred review)

    "Nothing like Jenny Lawson"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I really don't know.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sarah Thyre again?

    No.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The performance would have been better if the writing (humor) were better. It was never a question of voice.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No. I only half-laughed one time. It is so boring.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    "Dark At the Roots"

    I wasn't wild about some of the topics in this book, however the story line and goings on held my interest.
