"Silverman takes readers on a tour of the underground tunnel that is her mind, and believe me, it is as full of muck as the sewers of Paris. Only funnier....[A]n absurdist’s delight." (Booklist)
Writer, Journalist, Drummer. Columnist for the Houston Chronicle and feature writer for various publications. Currently writing my 1st book.
Sarah Silverman gives us a very honest, candid look into some of the darkest times in her life, delivering it all with a healthy amount of humor and plenty of the filthiness she has made so famous. If you dig Sarah Silverman, you will dig this book.
I regret that I took so long to read/listen to it.
The first half of the book was super interesting and showed a side that was funny, introspective, and kind in the midst of some pretty crazy life events. She balanced very tough stories with a moment of humor put in at just the right time. The second half (post mid-point break) was entertaining but didn't have me locked in like the first half. Still overall an enjoyable book that shows the thinking of (as she might say) a very three dimensional person.
Sarah's read was fantastic and I ended up liking her more as a result of the story. However, I disagree with her take on using slurs in humor and don't think she had much introspection or empathy in her discussion. A few slurs in the reading so heads up for that. Overall, would recommend.
Enjoyed this book. Sarah Silverman shows what unconditional love in family is and should be. Very funny. Listened to this book twice
