Editorial Reviews

Review

“[Kirkman’s] act has the feel of that wonderful moment at the end of a party when you are left alone to gossip with your best friend about the horrible and ridiculous things that just went on. Both on social media and onstage, however, Ms. Kirkman comes across as a happy warrior, a polemicist unafraid to show her silly side… Her jokes argue for the fun of being single, but it’s the way she tells them that prove it.”
-- Jason Zinoman, The New York Times, on Kirkman's Netflix special, I'm Gonna Die Alone

"This book is full of hilarious, candid, and sometimes gut-wrenching stories. There wasn't a single moment that I wasn't completely invested in what happened next. She peels back the curtain and reveals every emotion we all have to go through in life, but with such grace that you almost want to apologize for laughing so much—until you realize that's exactly what she wants you to do."
-- Sarah Colonna, bestselling author of Life As I Blow It and Has Anyone Seen My Pants?

“Often when I read a book, I nod because I can relate. But when Jen Kirkman, shares her stories, I can relate AND feel empowered.”
-- Lizz Winstead, co-creator of The Daily Show

“Jen Kirkman is a pragmatist. Let her help you clear your head—‘ease in’ rather than ‘lean in.’ Life is too short not to listen to her—and she’s right about everything, except the Congressional ban on pennies.”
-- Janeane Garofalo, author of Feel this Book

“Jen has a unique and essential point of view in comedy. This book is hilarious and emotionally profound. Simply magnificent.”
-- Margaret Cho, author of I'm the One That I Want

“This sharply witty memoir from the comic insightfully examines divorce and dating. A-.”
-- InTouch Weekly
