The totally hilarious Andrea Askowitz, who runs Lip Service, has written the upcoming memoir My Miserable, Lonely, Lesbian Pregnancy, and will soon be hitting the road for the Misery Loves Company tour (stopping May 15th at True Sex Cnfessions at In The Flesh!). Do you check her out. She's insanely funny and also incredibly nice. More on her soon.
Also, because I'm blurb-obsessed, check out the awesome blurbs she got from the likes of Jill Soloway, Louise Sloan and Ariel Gore. Someday I want to write a book that's Jill Soloway-blurb worthy. These are just a few of her blurbs; read the rest here and check out her blog too.
Andrea Askowitz's brilliant debut memoir is the exact kind of thing I’m always looking for at the bookstore—something that reads like an intimate yet super funny, painfully true letter from my very best friend. Andrea is like a girl version of David Sedaris or Augusten Burroughs, mining perfect comedic moments from the very worst of life’s offerings. You don’t have to be miserable, lonely or a lesbian to completely relate to the hilarious journey that is Andrea’s life.” —Jill Soloway, writer on Six Feet Under
"This is one whiny, bitchy pregnant lady—and you can't help but love her. Askowitz is funny and fearless." —Louise Sloan, author of Knock Yourself Up: A Tell-All Guide to Becoming a Single Mom
“You don’t have to be a miserable, lonely, pregnant lesbian to adore Andrea Askowitz’s awfully funny story. Anyone who enjoys schadenfreude, laugh-out-loud asides, and frank depictions of biological horrors will love this wonderful book. You will read it dog-eared and quote the most outrageous parts at length to all your friends.” —Jennifer Traig, author of Devil in the Details: Scenes from an Obsessive Girlhood
“Hilarious and all too true. After my own miserable lesbian pregnancy, Andrea Askowitz’s confessions cheered me up immeasurably.” —Ariel Gore, author of The Hip Mama Survival Guide
