PositiveLibrary JournalThose familiar with Slate’s previous works will recognize her slightly askew perception and delightful way of reframing the familiar. Here she has full rein with language, and her style is less precise than fulsome, throwing lots of things at the wall and seeing what sticks. Her subject is her whole self but fragmented, in her words, \'a weird party for a woman who has returned from grief,\' both vulnerable and moving, a party even non-partygoers might like to attend ... This volume mixes the oddball self-examination of Jenny Lawson with moments of poetic insight. Recommended for lovers of fizzy memoirs.
