"Stand-up comedian Jen Kirkman delivers a candid memoir about marriage, divorce, sex, turning forty, and still not quite having life figured out. She wants to be the voice in your head that says, Hey, you're okay. Even if you sometimes think you aren't. And especially if other people try to tell you you're not. Jen offers up gory details of a life permanently in progress. She reassures you that it's okay to not have life completely figured out, even when you reach middle age. She talks about making unusual or unpopular life decisions (such as cultivating a "friend with benefits" or not going home for the holidays) because you don't necessarily want for yourself what everyone else seems to think you should. It's about renting when everyone says you should own, dating around when everyone thinks you should settle down, and traveling alone when everyone pities you for going to Paris without a man. From marriage to divorce and sex to mental health, it's about embracing the fact that life is a bit of a sh*t show and it's definitely more than okay to stay true to yourself. Comedian and comedy writer Jen Kirkman has two comedy albums, Self-Help and Hail to the Freaks. She is the author of an earlier memoir: I Can Barely Take Care of Myself"-- Provided by publisher.
