I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING--AND OTHER LIES I TELL MYSELF Dispatches From a Life Under Construction

by | Read by Jen Kirkman

Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Stand-up comedian Jen Kirkman shares stories about her life in a blunt, highly amusing way. She adds intention and purpose to each account of her love life and career with a pleasing, enthusiastic tone. Her sprinkles of sarcasm are delivered with a natural charm that is reminiscent of her stand-up persona. Her playful, friendly voice and personal stories will encourage listeners to follow their own paths, even when everyone else says otherwise. The highlight of Kirkman’s narration is her hilarious send-ups of her mother’s loud voice and Waspy accent as she depicts their quirky relationship. Relatable stories of middle age, sex, and staying sane in a chaotic world are all engaging. D.Z. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2016]
