Bok av Laura Clery
A 2020 Audie Award Finalist From YouTube star and Facebook Video sensation Laura Clery comes a collection of comedic essays in the vein of We Are Never Meeting in Real Life by Samantha Irby and You'll Grow Out of It by Jessi Klein.Laura Clery makes a living by sharing inappropriate comedy sketches with millions of strangers on the Internet. She writes songs about her anatomy, talks trash about her one-eyed rescue pug, and sexually harasses her husband, Stephen. And it pays the bills! Now, in her first-ever book, Laura recounts how she went from being a dangerously impulsive, broke, unemployable, suicidal, cocaine-addicted narcissist, crippled by fear and hopping from one toxic romance to the nextto a more-happy-than-not, somewhat rational, meditating, vegan yogi with good credit, a great marriage, a fantastic career, and four unfortunate-looking rescue animals. Still, above all, Laura remains an amazingly talented, adorable, and vulnerable, self-describedIdiot. With her signature brand of offbeat, no-holds-barred humor, Idiot introduces you to a wildly originaland undeniably relatablenew voice.
Det här är en mycket personlig bok och även om den handlar om ett så svårt ämne som alkohol och narkotika missbruk så blir den aldrig för tung eller för svart tack vare Lauras humor. Men hon lyckas trots det få fram allvaret i det hela. Väldigt bra författaruppläsning vilket jag tror bidrar till att den känns så personlig.
