Hello! I looked into my brain and found a book. Here it is. Inside you will find:
  • The smell of honeysuckle
  • Heartbreak
  • A French-kissing rabbit
  • A haunted house
  • Death
  • A vagina singing sad old songs
  • Young geraniums in an ancient castle
  • Birth
  • A dog who appears in dreams as a spiritual guide
  • Divorce
  • Electromagnetic energy fields
  • Emotional horniness
  • The ghost of a sea captain
  • And more
I hope you enjoy these little weirds.

Love,

Jenny Slate

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Slate…brings her brand of whimsy and bracing honesty to a bizarre nonfiction narrative collection, touching on her childhood, growing up in a haunted house and divorce.” USA Today
“A tender and twee not-exactly memoir. The comedian…wraps her themes in ethereal layers of whimsy, fantasizing throughout…The party trick isn’t for everyone, but fans and gossip mongers are bound to have fun.” Vogue
“This debut essay collection…are well worth your time—a lovely glimpse into the mind of a truly great creative force.” BookPage
“Slate meditates on topics profound and ephemeral with wonder and stark honesty…Slate offers an intimate window into not only her mind, but her heart. The result is a dazzling, sensory gift for poetry lovers and fans of Slate’s distinctly odd, but deeply charming humor.” Publishers Weekly
“In this collage of essays, stories, dreams (both night and day), and pieces that defy easy categorization, the actor and comedian invites readers to pay an extended visit, one that will leave them enlightened, moved, and sometimes pleasantly puzzled.” Shelf Awareness
