Book Description

5 May 2011

Sarah Silverman's father taught her to curse-at the age of three. She was a chronic bedwetter-until she was old enough to drive. She lost her virginity at age 19-but didn't really know it.

These are just a few of the outrageous true tales that Silverman shares in her alternately hilarious and moving collection of autobiographical essays. With her signature taboo-breaking humour, Silverman writes on everything from her epic struggle with hairy arms (there wasn't enough wax in the world) to the death of her infant brother (It was Nana's fault) and always leaves the reader with a smile. Mixed in among the essays are scores of embarrassing photos, mortifying childhood diary entries, and truly humiliating e-mails to and from her comedian friends.

Product Description

Review

Silverman serves up plenty of the daredevil humour for which she is notorious...[a] gleeful insight into the baser instincts of some of America s greatest comic talents. --Independent

Irreverent, funny and sometimes winningly serious. Though Silverman s book provides her customary shock-and-awe humor... it is Silverman s honesty and vunerability that are most surprising. --Los Angeles Times

[Sarah Silverman s] excellent The Bedwetter is recommended even if you aren t that familiar with her television show. Silverman s life is served up for laughs and occasional pathos, as she grows up with a tricky family of characters in New Hampshire, but it s her vicious yet refreshingly unbitchy tongue that lures you in. --Giles Hattersley, The Sunday Times

'Most compelling when she outlines traumas that defined her childhood ... [and] most likeable when genuine rage pokes through her veneer of guileless loquacity ... despite her merry blasphemies, Silverman is on the side of the angels.' --Guardian

[Sarah Silverman s] excellent The Bedwetter is recommended even if you aren t that familiar with her television show. Silverman s life is served up for laughs and occasional pathos, as she grows up with a tricky family of characters in New Hampshire, but it s her vicious yet refreshingly unbitchy tongue that lures you in. --Giles Hattersley, The Sunday Times

4.0 out of 5 stars Comedy Marmite 5 July 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love Sarah Silverman but I understand that she is comedy marmite. Nobody seems to sit on the fence, it's either a love or hate affair. Assuming you are looking at this book because you are a fan (and not to use it for fire kindling or toilet paper) I can definitely recommend it.

It is an honest and unabashed account of her life until now. From her childhood struggles with bed wetting and depression to her slow climb in to the not always pleasant comedy industry.

A must for anyone who enjoys her work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for a fan 29 Jan 2012
By Bash
Format:Paperback
This book had the beginnings of an interesting and funny look into Sarah's life and where she came from.
After you get past the forward, written by herself (how Silverman), you get some funny and interesting bits about her early life and how her life was ruled by her bedwetting. Then there is a mention of how she is finding the book hard to write and you know what it feels it. It feels like there was not enough interesting stuff to write about so it is filled with... filler. So yeah... as a fan it is interesting and funny but really only because I was so eager for it to be funny and interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good 21 Mar 2011
Format:Hardcover
I liked this book for the most part. I dont know that it revealed anything earth shattering but it was a good read. There was a little too much emphasis on the authors father which became tedious rather than enlightening. That said it still provided enough entertainment to keep me reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny 12 Mar 2013
By Rachel
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had never heard of Sarah Silverman until I saw her on The Graham Norton Show.

I took to her immediately, I thought she was totally unique and very funny.

So, I bought her book (which is something I wouldn't normally do). I had no preconceived ideas and so just bought it with an open mind.

I found it warming, hilarious, funny, normal, sometimes a bit shocking, but overall fantastic. I especially loved her foreword, mid-word and emails to and from the publishers.

Sarah Silverman may be an aquired taste, I understand how some people don't "get" her, but I do and that is why her book gets 5 stars from me.

A new fan is born...!

From an interesting account about teenage depression to accounts of her most controversial moments of her career told in a very funny manner. If you like her sick jokes you will definitely like her tales!

Really funny, intelligent and straight from the heart - loads of pictures to illustrate - brutally honest (maybe too honest!)
