Anne T. Donahue has a serious message: Be yourself, find your own path, it's normal to fail, and nobody is judging you nearly as intently as you are judging yourself. But this seriousness of purpose is wrapped up in a hilarious and self-deprecating torrent of words that Donahue delivers with an acerbic bite and energetic pacing. She is both immensely entertaining and discomfortingly self-reflective as she ricochets through her life, exploring her educational and occupational failures, alcoholism, the benefits of therapy, friendship mistakes, an intense dislike of cheese, and a long-time crush on Leonardo DiCaprio. Donahue is a Canadian writer in her early 30s who is wrestling with "adulting"; these essays combined with her fresh and funny performance are both hilarious and inspirational. A.B.
