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

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.
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.
This book isn't for everyone, there are very funny moments that had me laugh out loud in public places, parts that made me squirm with horror and parts that made me sad. But overall it was very entertaining.
It's a five star for me because I tend to read thrillers and fantasy and find autobiogs boring. But I couldn't put this one down; it is the only autobiog that I've been able to finish.
PS Sarah if you read this, I'm a Christian and I loved you God material xo
I absolutely loved it, couldn't put it down, and wish there was more. It is hilarious. It follows the same pattern as Miranda Hart's book, in that at times she talks directly to the reader about writing the book, talking with the publishers, how slow the process is etc, but she does it so well. There are a few pictures in there too. There is some swearing in the book, so maybe it's not suitable for everyone, and it does involve sex, drugs, and depression, but all dealt with in a very funny way.
I may read this again. Can't say enough good things about it.
I guess it's a matter of personal taste? If my friend wanted to read it, I'd recommend borrowing it from the library to be honest.
