“Andrea Askowitz brilliant debut memoir is the exact kind of thing I’m always looking for at the bookstore—something that reads like an intimate yet super funny, painfully true letter from my very best friend.

You don’t have to be miserable, lonely or a lesbian to completely relate to the hilarious journey that is Andrea’s life.”—Jill Soloway, writer on Six Feet Under
