9780061856457: The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee

Sarah Silverman's father taught her to curse-at the age of three. She was a chronic bedwetter-until she was old enough to drive. She lost her virginity at age 19-but didn't really know it.

These are just a few of the outrageous true tales that Silverman shares in her alternately hilarious and moving collection of autobiographical essays. With her signature taboo-breaking humour, Silverman writes on everything from her epic struggle with hairy arms (there wasn't enough wax in the world) to the death of her infant brother (It was Nana's fault) and always leaves the reader with a smile. Mixed in among the essays are scores of embarrassing photos, mortifying childhood diary entries, and truly humiliating e-mails to and from her comedian friends.

Review:

Silverman serves up plenty of the daredevil humour for which she is notorious...[a] gleeful insight into the baser instincts of some of America s greatest comic talents. --Independent

Irreverent, funny and sometimes winningly serious. Though Silverman s book provides her customary shock-and-awe humor... it is Silverman s honesty and vunerability that are most surprising. --Los Angeles Times

[Sarah Silverman s] excellent The Bedwetter is recommended even if you aren t that familiar with her television show. Silverman s life is served up for laughs and occasional pathos, as she grows up with a tricky family of characters in New Hampshire, but it s her vicious yet refreshingly unbitchy tongue that lures you in. --Giles Hattersley, The Sunday Times

'Most compelling when she outlines traumas that defined her childhood ... [and] most likeable when genuine rage pokes through her veneer of guileless loquacity ... despite her merry blasphemies, Silverman is on the side of the angels.' --Guardian

Book Description:
