THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES TOP 10 BESTSELLER 'Jessi Klein is a brilliant comedic mind and this book is a perfect reflection of that. It's like having a glass of wine with the best friend you wish you had' - Amy Schumer 'Miranda July meets Tina Fey' The Pool As both a tomboy and a late bloomer, comedian Jessi Klein grew up feeling more like an outsider than a participant in the rites of modern femininity. In YOU'LL GROW OUT OF IT, Klein offers-through an incisive collection of real-life stories-a relentlessly funny yet poignant take on a variety of topics she has experienced along her strange journey to womanhood and beyond. These include her "transformation from Pippi Longstocking-esque tomboy to are-you-a-lesbian-or-what tom man," attempting to find watchable porn, and identifying the difference between being called 'ma'am' and 'miss' ('Miss sounds like you weigh ninety-nine pounds'). Raw, relatable, and consistently hilarious, YOU'LL GROW OUT OF IT is a one-of-a-kind book by a singular and irresistible comic voice.

Review:

Words of wisdom ... everything from breakups to pregnancy to ageing -- Abby Haglage * The Guardian * A gifted comedian turns the anxieties, obsessions, insecurities, and impossible-to-meet expectations that make up human nature into laughter. * Kirkus * Never afraid to share insights and reveal the raw truth behind her own stories, Klein makes readers laugh while inspiring them, a feat that calls to mind the work of the late Nora Ephron. This uplifting and uproarious collection of personal essays will be repeatedly shared among friends. * Publishers Weekly * Fans of Amy Schumer (i.e., everybody?) will fall in love with funny-woman-and Emmy Award-winning Inside Amy Schumer writer-Jessi Klein's relatable collection of humor essays....Klein is a truly witty PRINZESS. * Bust * This book, her first, is the kind you dog-ear to death because there are so many good lines * New York Post * [Klein's] collection of mini rants strike that rare balance of honesty, brutality, and soul * Glamour * Her arguments are sharp, her confessions just light enough, and-most crucially-her quips LOL-worthy on almost every page * Vulture * Chances are Jessi Klein made you ugly-laugh... laugh even harder with the comedian's essay collection * Marie Claire * Is it really a surprise that comedian Jessi Klein, head writer and executive producer for Inside Amy Schumer, would write a book of personal essays brimming with sharp observations and insights and poignant recollections but that above all is very, very funny? ...We guarantee that this book will quickly become one of your summer favorites. * Entertainment Weekly * You'll Grow Out Of It does an amazing job making me understand what my life might be like if I were a woman. Or if I were Jessi Klein. I laughed. Lots. Not at what it's like to be a woman! That would be sexist. I laughed at the parts that you're supposed to. Which are plentiful. Because Jessi Klein is truly really funny. * Ira Glass * [Jessi Klein's] astute, hilarious essays about the perilous path to modern womanhood will have you wincing in recognition. * People * Klein shares her eccentric path to adulthood, from her tomboyish girlhood to sidesplitting dating tales and beyond in this uproarious, relatable, and irresistible memoir. * Harper's Bazaar * Hilarious... In these 24 short pieces, her irreverent and inventive brand of humor almost seamlessly transfers to essay form. Riffs on dating, aging, marriage, infertility and childbirth have the zing-and-run rhythm of sketch comedy, but structured for the page... These pieces often have a let-me-level-with-you directness reminiscent of Ephron without being too imitative... One of the higher echelons of praise for confessional essays is that they mimic the experience of listening to your best friend. Klein's read as if you're texting with her and have been for your whole life. * New York Times * Her writing is equal parts funny, strange and poetic. Think Miranda July meets Tina Fey * The Pool * Jessi Klein is a brilliant comedic mind and this book is a perfect reflection of that. It's like having a glass of wine with the best friend you wish you had. * Amy Schumer *
