Publisher's Summary

Audible exclusive. We invite Lindy West to the studios to talk about her new novel, Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman. 'A memoir about the issues that have shaped my life. How to deal with trolls, feminist criticism of comedy and body image - to name but a few.'

About Shrill: 'Women are told, from birth, that it's our job to be small: physically small, small in our presence, and small in our impact on the world. We're supposed to spend our lives passive, quiet and hungry. I want to obliterate that expectation....'

Guardian columnist Lindy West wasn't always loud. It's difficult to believe she was once a nerdy, overweight teen who wanted nothing more than to be invisible. Fortunately for women everywhere, along the road she found her voice - and how she found it!

Thank You...

Lindy West is beautiful and inspiring. I appreciate her honesty. As a "toothpick" tall skinny pretty white woman from the south, I relate to every word. My Audible account along with many others have been taken over by those unhappy people, even. I've lost count of the friends I've lost due to trolls and groups of trolls. Thankfully, I'm still happy. Guess it's time to act via becoming a feminist. Thank You for your inspiring and courageous words and acts of honesty. Seems a bit too rare these days. Blessings and Best!

People should be more accepting of others, a great book from a very great comedian.
