    This book defines what a Memoir should be. No candy coated life stories here!

    "Shoulders back, titties first" - Jenifer Lewis

    “JOURNAL ENTRY: Stop waiting for something or someone to come and make you happy. Meditate daily. Breathe. Come on. You’re okay. You have friends. Love them. Respect them. Go out and play. Learn to be alone.”

    Do not read this book!! Listen to the audiobook!!! You will do yourself a disservice by not hearing her words from her own mouth. I loved this book. She was of course real and raw but she brought it full circle and I could tell it was a genuine labor of love, to help people and not a Broadway/Hollywood tell all or a ploy to make some money. Well done!!

    EXCELLENT memoir! I had the pleasure of reading and listening to the audiobook simultaneously. What a life this entertaining woman has had! I definitely recommend it, especially the audiobook because she is narrating it.

    This book was funny, honest, loud and way over the top just like the writer. I'd expect nothing less from Jenifer Lewis. I of course listened to the audiobook version which provides the entire experience. She's quite honest about her childhood, her mental health, her sex life, and the ups and downs of being a hollywood diva. Before reading this I only thought she was an actress. I had no idea that she had these roles in between her one-woman shows and could really perform. My only annoyance was

    This book was funny, honest, loud and way over the top just like the writer. I'd expect nothing less from Jenifer Lewis. I of course listened to the audiobook version which provides the entire experience. She's quite honest about her childhood, her mental health, her sex life, and the ups and downs of being a hollywood diva. Before reading this I only thought she was an actress. I had no idea that she had these roles in between her one-woman shows and could really perform. My only annoyance was the random full on singing throughout the book. I'm just not a fan of her voice and I just wanted the book not a musical. Other than that it was very entertaining and I enjoyed it.
