Biography & Memoir • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

This sardonically read meditation on life as a woman in contemporary America is the latest in a summer flowering of books by female comics. Jessi Klein gives voice to the tumult of being a late bloomer who grows up to become a smart woman in Hollywood. Her reflections on the double standards for women's beauty and the pains of growing older under a microscope are told to the listener in a casually confiding way. Profanity and self-deprecation are sprinkled liberally throughout the pithy chapters. Klein bares all in an honest, level tone, revealing the heartache of breakups and infertility treatments. The result is a hip feminist anthem told in the sarcastic tone of an older sibling. M.R. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2016]
