If you’re a fan of Kathy Griffin’s brand of humor, you’ll definitely enjoy her book. But don’t expect to be reading a transcript of one of her stand-up specials. This is a memoir, and, in being true to exploring the experiences that have brought her to where she is, it’s not all celebrity trash-talking (although she does get that in there, too). Kathy is willing to talk about and tackle some of the less positive experiences she’s had in her life and how those have helped to make her stronger and inspired her to become the woman, actress, and comedian that she is today. But don’t be scared away by that – it’s hilarious and it definitely left me with a new respect for someone I’ve been a fan of for years.
