"At once wildly entertaining and achingly poignant. Paul Scheer takes you on a courageous dive through the darker waters of his past, and his irrepressible spirit shines through and beckons us to join him in the light." -- Casey Wilson

"Read Paul Scheer's Joyful Recollections of Trauma for an unexpected journey where humor and heartache collide. Scheer masterfully navigates the tightrope of life's absurdities, delivering a poignant, yet uproariously funny, exploration of personal tales that resonate deeply and delight endlessly." -- Jessi Klein

"Paul Scheer is good at everything. A writer, performer, and director who's entertained millions onscreen and in podcasts over the years, it's almost unfair he's also a fucking amazing memoirist, too. The stories in this book are funny and dark at the same time. Honest and true. The kind of writing that sticks with you." -- Ed Brubaker

"An endearing underdog story that will have readers cheering for the author from a troubled beginning to a sweet, happy end." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
