Review:

"In this book, as onstage, she has the power to shock--not so easy in these times. Lenny Bruce and Richard Pryor crossed lines; now that the controversy has faded, we remember their genius. And so we will with Sarah Silverman."--People

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

"Readers...get a fully realized portrait of Silverman: tales from a youth spent moistening mattresses and fighting depression in New Hampshire; her salad days as a struggling comedienne in New York; and the various trials that have come with being the filthiest, funniest woman on television."--Elle

"An engrossing (and grossing) journey from childhood to childish adulthood.... Silverman's standup, normally marked by a detached persona and thick outer layer of snark and irony, is off-putting for some, but here she hits previously unseen levels of honesty and sincerity while still retaining her expected level of filth."--Heeb Magazine

"Odd, shambling, and funny... as close to an explanation of Silverman and her comedy as we're likely to get. It seems to be saying, Obviously I'm joking, but it's also me up there."--New York magazine

"Often hilarious and occasionally revelatory.... More than just a collection of gags and stand-up leftovers, 'The Bedwetter' is a mostly cohesive narrative of how a rebellious comic perspective evolved and became inseparable from the person who employs it, and how anyone who could find offense in that is really the butt of the joke."--New York Times

"Deftly mixes the spit-take funny stuff with an unsentimental but enlightened look back at her not-so-charmed life and career."--Vanity Fair

"Without curtailing her trademark potty-mouth humor and shock tactics, comedian Sarah Silverman has written a memoir that's sweet, funny, real and, dare I say it, occasionally even touching... Silverman's book suggests that, behind the cute face and dirty mouth, there's a clever woman with a warm heart."--Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"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)

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)"

Book Description:

Shockingly funny book from the controversial and brilliant American comedian: This is the book your mother warned you about but you have to read anyway.
