Publisher's Summary

Darcie Wilder's Literally Show Me a Healthy Person is a careful confession soaking in saltwater, a size B control top jet black pantyhose dragged over a skinned knee and slipped into unlaced doc martens. Blurring the lines of the written word, Literally Show Me a Healthy Person is a portrait of a young girl, or woman, or something; grappling with the immediate and seemingly endless urge to document and describe herself and the world around her. Dealing with the aftermath of her mother's death, her father's neglect, and the chaotic unspoken expectations around her, this novel is a beating heart at the intersection of literature, poetry, and the Internet. Darcie Wilder elevates and applies direct pressure, but the wound never stops bleeding.

Darcie Wilder is brilliant!

Would you listen to Literally Show Me a Healthy Person again? Why?

Enjoyed the hell out of this. Listened to this with my friends on a road trip and we were laughing the whole way through. Deadpan comedy at it's finest.

Not for the faint hearted

Strange and honest little number. Far from prudish, closer to explicit. Dark and deep and odd and wonderful.
