Ophira doesn't hide the fact that she has been around the block once or twice, not only in Canada where she grew up, but also in New York where she officially starts her comic career. After she graduates from high school, Ophira decides to take a year-long trip to Australia. She then bounces from one part of Canada to the next trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life. She goes to college, in Quebec, Canada, and receives her degree in Anthropology, all while pining for her older ex-boyfriend and working on her "fieldwork," which is basically just a fancy word for sleeping with a few more guys so that she could forget about her ex.
After graduating and working many dead-end jobs in Vancouver, Canada, Ophira realizes it's time to do something drastic and takes a stand up comedian class and an acting class. Finally done with Canada, she moves to New York with only $600 to her name. Along her journey throughout Canada and New York Ophira dates all sorts of guys: a few musicians, a pastry chef, a movie critic, a Garfield enthusiast, and so on and so on. Ophira wasn't about to settle for just anyone; she even tells her final suitor that she never, ever wanted to get married.
I saw Ophira Eisenberg on TV a few weeks ago on a late night talk show to promote her book.Read more ›
This book is great if you enjoy Chelsea Handler, Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman etc. It's not so much the story itself that's entertaining as the way she told the story. Honestly, I'd read it again down the road.
Few women as brilliant and articulate as Eisenberg write books about being "a slut." That makes this a rare treat.
As does her describing a first French kiss as being "better than eating bacon on Hanukkah morning."
Right before posting this, I ran across a comment I quite liked by Marion Winik in Newsday: "There are few sentences in this book that aren't funny. Eisenberg remains unapologetic yet lovable all the way through."
This isn't for every taste; prudes will not approve. But click the "Look Inside" feature above and see if it's for you.
I thought I was going to love this audio book based on the first half hour. I smiled a few times and thought the writing was good. The trouble comes in from the repetition and the sex.
It gets repetitive because all the stories become "I got high and then I slept with this weird guy. It was weird." While there were some clever lines and I might have smiled every couple hours ago, it devolves to essential diary entries.
I've never read a book, so clearly about sex, where the author actively shuns and is embarrassed by anything beyond straight missionary and oral. And to hear her describe how uncomfortable she was in any sort of sexual situation not rated PG was just odd. She would be shocked to come to my house, have a few drinks and hear what comes out of my friend's mouths. And that's too bad because we're about as white bread normal as you can get.

I liked the book. Very good entertainment. I hope it goes on to every read in list. I will not do it again if I must write a term paper about it.

I was expecting this to be entertaining, but definitely not as entertaining as it turned out to be. I also wasn't expecting it to be so deeply hilarious. Read morePublished 11 months ago by J. Blaze

I wanted to love the book. The author seemed funny when interviewed on NPR. Frankly, I was exhausted for her by the time I got to the last few chapters. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Cathy H.
