In You'll Grow Out of It, Jessi Klein offers - through an incisive collection of real-life stories - a relentlessly funny yet poignant take on a variety of topics she has experienced along her strange journey to womanhood and beyond. These include her "transformation from Pippi Longstocking-esque tomboy to are-you-a-lesbian-or-what tom man", attempting to find watchable porn, and identifying the difference between being called "ma'am" and "miss" (" miss sounds like you weigh 99 pounds").

started out with a really depressed vibe but then I connected with the author because she was just so honest about her life and growing up. honestly it wasn't many jokes it was just her view on life and I felt like it was similar to mine.

so this is one of the books that has changed my life. I'm reading it for the second time and I have gotten so much out of it. I plan to read it a third time because I seem to be a different person each time I finish it so I understand it way differently the next time around.

In one memorable The Simpsons moment, Homer laughs hysterically at a standup comic, pausing only to gasp, "It's true, we're so lame!" In a sense, that is author Chris Turner's main thesis: Over the last 15 years, The Simpsons has chronicled the absurdities and the defining events of an increasingly confusing culture.
