©2010 Sarah Silverman (P)2010 HarperCollins Publishers
"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)
Silverman gives a fine dead-pan reading of her own material.
That a particular part of her body is not used whatsoever for its intended purpose, in fact, its clean enough to eat off of.
Entertaining and easy to follow. Sarah is entertaining and relatable. She easily avoids getting caught up in vapid ramblings, whic, for me, seems to be a common pitfall in comedian autobio's. Great book to just relax and unwind with.
I've loved and disliked Sarah Silverman both at the same time. I have always thought her a little more blunt about sex and bodily functions than I felt comfortable with. That being said, I adore people who speak truths and can look at their own imperfections with clarity. She reads the way she speaks and found myself busting out in laughter and a couple times almost-cry. She didn't leave me hanging in the latter emotion long though before she had me laughing again.
At the end of this book I put down my phone and thought, "I could actually hang out with this immature 40 something."

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.
