Dinners with Ruth
A Memoir of Friendship
“Delightfully narrated by the author, these descriptions of lifelong friendships among famous groundbreaking career women are a treat and a balm.”Renee, The Bookstore of Glen Ellyn
I'm Glad My Mom Died
“Woah! There is so much to unpack here. I put on the audiobook and finished it in two days because I just couldn't stop listening. I didn't grow up watching iCarly—coincidentally because I grew up Mormon—but Jennette McCurdy's memoir will strike a chord (many chords) with anyone who reads it. We could all do with a little more understanding on what it's like to be a child star, to have an abusive mother, to experience religious trauma, and to live with eating disorders and addiction. McCurdy tackles these subjects with the sensitivity of someone who understands while also being frank about how these experiences have affected and continue to affect her life. (And, if anyone is wondering, yes. That is how most Mormons think of the Holy Ghost.)”Kvothe, Rediscovered Books

Ten Steps to Nanette
A Memoir Situation
“In 2017, at the height of the Me Too movement, Hannah Gadsby changed comedy as we know it with her groundbreaking show, Nanette. As a woman, as a lesbian, as a gender-nonconforming person, as a neuro-atypical person, as a victim of trauma, Gadsby mapped out a way forward for comedy that didn't make herself, and people like her, the butt of the joke. Part memoir, part 'making of,' this book gets at the heart of her journey to self-acceptance and fame. If you laugh-sobbed your way through Nanette like I did (and then went back to the beginning and did it again, and again, and again) then read this book to find out just how she did it and why.”Rachel, The Book Table
