About the Author

Sarah Silverman is the co-creator and star of The Sarah Silverman Program. She won an Emmy in 2009 for her video I'm F***ing Matt Damon, and was nominated for a Primetime Emmy for her role on The Sarah Silverman Program. Silverman lives in Los Angeles with her dog, Duck, presuming he does not die prior to publication, which is moderately to extremely likely.

Reviews

Silverman is great on-screen, and even her film Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic, less than an hour-and-a-half long, is not enough! Luckily, she's in print now and just as funny. This look back at the childhood and beginning career of Silverman, bed wetter extraordinaire, isn't a stab at a complete autobiography, though. It's more of a sketch that highlights particularly influential parts of growing up, like being a bed wetter, which lead to a career of delighting in potty humor. From her humble New England beginnings to her forays into crossing Asian American watchdog groups, fashion police, and various network censors, Silverman's loose collection of stories makes for great reading. Silverman is not known for self-censoring, and her book is filled with off-color language; what's more, at least one photograph makes the title inappropriate for school libraries. VERDICT For any reader who enjoys Silverman's stand-up and television work, her freshman literary effort is highly entertaining, provides a fascinating introduction to the person behind the persona, and should fly off the shelves-order a few. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 12/09; 300,000-copy first printing; four-city tour; ebook ISBN 978-0-06-198707-6.]-Audrey Snowden, Cleveland P.L. Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

In this somewhat disjointed but appealing memoir, comedian Silverman chirpily narrates anecdotes about growing up Jewish in New Hampshire, her struggles with depression and bedwetting, her efforts to make it in comedy, the fun she's had working on her (now canceled) Comedy Central show, and coping with the controversy her jokes generate. Silverman's comic timing enhances the text; her little-girl voice clashes well with her exuberant love for crudity and fart jokes, and lends the more serious sections an unexpected poignancy. A Harper hardcover (Reviews, Mar. 29). (May) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

"Hilarious memoir...Silverman never shies away from poking fun at her own expense. Though she's best known for sexually explicit jokes, Silverman is able to address more serious subjects in the book without losing her edge, particularly her teenage struggle with depression."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
