My Friend Wrote a Book You Might Like


But it is not for kids. Not by a long chalk.

Unless your kids want to sneak it off your shelves the way some people might have done with Fear of Flying circa 1978. Or so I hear.

But you? You might really like it.

Note: Jessica is a nut, and it's a nutty book, just like her in any number of endearing and entertaining ways. It's warm, and smutty, and friendly, and giddy, and fun-loving. It's the book you want to go to a party with, the book who will warmly introduce you to everyone she's with and make sure you're having a good time. Oh, and did I say she's really, really funny? Even Nick Hornby thinks so, and he is famous.

I know I am utterly without objectivity (hi, FTC!), but I can tell you that I went to see her read, and it was funny and excellent, and I went home and read her book, and all of it made me really happy.

I must, however, warn you that if you don't think the following things have at least the potential to be funny, maybe skip it: a bread bag of cocaine, sex with Billy Idol, people indiscriminantly (and discriminantly) flashing their whangs around. But if you do? I say go for it.

But don't let your kids see where you shelve it.

  1. OK. Time to download first book to my 6th Kindle. (Keep breaking ’em.) I’ll let you know what I think, but sounds like a summer read I’ll like.
