This is a gift of a book from a young writer who seems likely to become a comedy star. - NPR Comedic gold. - O, The Oprah Magazine There's a lot of humanity in these pages, and it's a humanity that Mania renders with both tenderness and hilarity. - BuzzFeed An impressive humorist with a voice all his own. - Kirkus Reviews Greg Mania is one of the funniest up-and-coming writers cranking out work and he is finally releasing his laugh-out-loud memoir....Come for the laughs, stay for the heartwarming story of coming out in the most millennial way possible. - Electric Literature Unafraid to tell the messy truths about identity, sex, mental health, and ambition, Mania's memoir is relatable and fun to read at the same time that it is heartfelt and honest. It even has photos, which are pure gold. - Shondaland A smashing debut. - Lambda Literary Greg Mania is the Cheesecake Factory of writers, and I say that with the utmost reverence: extravagant, unapologetic, hilarious, and f*cking good. - Lindy West, author of Shrill and The Witches Are Coming This book is a hilarious wonder. Not only does it prove that Greg Mania was, indeed, born to be a public (and beloved) icon, but also that he was born to be a celebrated writer. It's sheer delight. - Alissa Nutting, author of Tampa and Made for Love
