Previously Retta spent seven seasons playing the uber beloved office mate Donna Meagle on NBC's critically acclaimed comedy Parks and Recreation.


"Hollywood has no more honest, hilarious or necessary guide than Retta. If her tweets just aren't enough, get ready for the fullness of her vision- you're gonna laugh. You're gonna think. You're gonna be hella glad you came." --Lena Dunham, author of Not That Kind of Girl

"Reading this book is like having the best coffee date with the life-long friend I wish I had. Retta makes me laugh and feel so hard." --America Ferrera

"Two things - 1) Don't yell "Treat Yo Self" at Retta if you see her in person, a lot of people have done that already, just whisper it to yourself and give her a thumbs up. That'd be cool. 2) Check out her book. Stop reading this quote and buy it already boo boo." --Aziz Ansari, author of Modern Romance

"This book feels like a real conversation. When we enter Retta's world we are at the best party and in the hands of a gracious, self-perceptive and deeply hilarious host." --Amy Poehler, author of Yes, Please

"A humorous memoir that will please the author's many fans and followers." --Kirkus Reviews

"Whether recalling her early years doing stand-up on the college circuit, expounding on the ways TV shows reflect us, or fangirling hard for the musical Hamilton, comedian and actor Retta spins entertaining tales and hilarious phrases.... As books like this one go, hers is as honest, funny, and fun to read as they come." --Booklist

"Retta's unique voice and refreshing honesty will make you laugh, cry, and laugh so hard you cry." --Bustle

"A breezy and comedic tale... Fans of stand-up comedy, celebrity books, and especially fans of Retta's work will likely enjoy this fun, lighthearted read." --Library Journal

"Retta was already one of our favorite people in Hollywood -- yet the hilarious, inspirational essays of So Close to Being the Sh*t, Y'all Don't Even Know made us love her even more." --Popsugar

"Get ready to laugh out loud in public." --Cosmopolitan

"The hilarious star of Parks and Recreation and Good Girls, Retta knows how to get a laugh. Her debut essay collection tackles everything from abandoning her med school plans to stalking the cast of Hamilton." --Purewow

"This memoir is fantastic. It's funny, it's heartfelt, it's insightful, and it's charming. I liked Retta before; now I'm her biggest fan." --Bookriot
