Publisher's Summary

The star of Bravo's breakout scripted comedy Odd Mom Out shares her razor-sharp wit and backhanded wisdom in a deeply observed and outrageously funny collection of musings, lists, essays, and outrages.

From her unique lingo (things don't simply frighten her, they M. Night Shyamalan her out) to her gimlet-eyed view of narrow-mindedness to her morbid but curiously life-affirming parenting style, Jill Kargman is nothing if not original. In this hilarious new book, the sharp-elbowed mother of three turns her unconventional lens on life and death and everything in between, including:

  • The politically correct peer pressure she felt from the new moms in her hood, the women who provided the grist for the mill of her hit television show
  • The evolution of her aesthetic from Miami Vice vibrant (a very brief flirtation) to Wednesday Addams meets rocker chic
  • Her deep-seated New Yorker's discomfort with moving vehicles that aren't taxis and subways (aka "suburban panic disorder")
  • The family obsession with reading obituaries for their medical revelations and real estate news value
  • The reasons why, in a land of tan-orexic baby-oil beach bakers, she chooses to honor the valor of her ghostly pallor

From a hellish visit to the Happiest Place on Earth to her unusual wedding night with Russell Crowe to her adrenaline-pumping gay pride parade experience, Sprinkle Glitter on My Grave is as wonderfully indecent and entertaining as a spring break road trip with your best friend. Assuming your best friend is the kind of gal who still wears a motorcycle jacket to pick up the kids at school.

    "Really annoying"
    Any additional comments?

    I'd seen "Odd Mom Out" and thought it was funny, so I thought I'd give one of Jill's books a try. I didn't make it past the 2nd chapter. Jill seems to thing that more curse words=more coolness. I'm not even that bothered by expletives, but it's tiring when there are 1-2 in each sentence, mingled with Yiddish words. Jill Kargman tries very hard to convince you what a hip and goth-cool mom she is. I was annoyed and couldn't take any more of it by the 2nd chapter. I returned this audiobook.

    "#Obsessed"

    LOVED!!!! Seriously. I haven't read (er.. listened to) a book this lighthearted and funny in a long time. Jill's voice adds a lot to the enjoyment factor.
    My one and only complaint: It's too short!

    "laughed thru the whole book"

    I just love Jill. I am a huge fan of Odd Mom Out. I always feel I could relate to her character. after listening to this book I realize it isn't an act. her rants are so relatable. if you can't handle 4 letter words then this isn't for you. Jill thank you for making sitting in my car fun again.
