"Samantha Irby is as bad as she wants to be."
— Chicago Tribune
"Whether she’s writing about her latest inflammatory bowel disease attack or documenting a sexual escapade gone awry (sometimes simultaneously), you’ll most likely be able to relate to Irby’s tell-all book. Her raw honesty and scathing sense of humor will make you laugh out loud "
"There is no summing up Samno writerly preface, no small-talk tidbits, no rundown of vital stats that can suffice. She is irreducible, like a prime number, or a quark [...] Irby's writing has a powerfully intimacy, a direct connection between her and her readers. On the page, she's more an essayist than a storyteller per se, with the essayist's intellectual habitsexploring ideas, contradicting herself, poking thoughts to see if they burst, and then reveling in the mess."
— Chicago Reader
"Irby has the rare ability to divulge her personal problems to an expansive, invisible Internet audience and still dazzle a crowded room of literati."
— Chicago Magazine

Don't read this if the thought of reading vivid descriptions of body parts makes your stomach turn, or if you'd rather not learn a dozen new nicknames for a vagina (my favorite was "womb hole"). Also don't read this story in public if you have poor bladder control.
