Contemporary Culture • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Comedian Samantha Irby’s droll humor, unflinching realness, and impeccable timing are on full display in her narration of her latest audiobook. In essays ranging from the mostly serious to the mundane, she blends outrageous humor with heartfelt emotion. Whether she’s talking about the messy realities of living in a body; being a Black, queer woman in small-town Michigan; stepparenting; or her general distaste for socializing, her frank, friendly voice will draw listeners in. Stretching out words for emphasis, frequently modulating her volume, extending pauses, and adding sarcastic asides are just a few of the ways she turns this audiobook into what feels like live storytelling. This book is meant to be read aloud; Irby infuses every word with her wit, delight, and no-nonsense attitude. L.S. 2021 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2020]
