Jenny Slate’s wild, unfiltered imagination creates a “magical” (Mindy Kaling), “delicious” (Amy Sedaris), and “poignant” (John Mulaney) collection about love, heartbreak, and being alive!
Jenny Slate has a new Netflix special, “Stage Fright,” and is also the creator of Marcel the Shell, and star of “Obvious Child.” However, this book really introduces you to Jenny Slate!
You get to see the world through Jenny’s eyes, for the first time, shimmering with strangeness and possibility. She reminds readers that we live on an ancient ball that rotates around a bigger ball made up of lights and gasses that are science gasses, not farts (don’t be immature). Heartbreak, confusion, and misogyny stalk this blue-green sphere, but also wild delight and unconstrained vitality start the life of earth. In her dazzling, impossible-to-categorize debut, Jenny channels the pain and beauty of life in writing so fresh, so new, and so burstingly alive, we catch her vision like a fever and bring it back out into the bright day with us, and everything has changed.
