New York TimesBestseller

From the co-creator and co-star of the hit seriesBroad City, a "poignant, funny, and beautifully unabashed" (Cheryl Strayed)bestselling essay collection about love, loss, work, comedy, and figuring out who you really are when you thought you already knew.

When Abbi Jacobson announced to friends and acquaintances that she planned to drive across the country alone, she was met with lots of questions and opinions: Why wasn't she going with friends? Wouldn't it be incredibly lonely? The North route is better! Was it safe for a woman? The Southern route is the way to go! You should bring mace! And a common one... why? But Abbi had always found comfort in solitude, and needed space to step back and hit the reset button. As she spent time in each city and town on her way to Los Angeles, she mulled over the big questions-- What do I really want? What is the worst possible scenario in which I could run into my ex? How has the decision to wear my shirts tucked in been pivotal in my adulthood?

In this collection of anecdotes, observations and reflections--all told in the sharp, wildly funny, and relatable voice that has endeared Abbi to critics and fans alike--readers will feel like they're in the passenger seat on a fun and, ultimately, inspiring journey. With some original illustrations by the author.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hilarious and Relatable Prior to reading this memoir, I had not heard of Abbi Jacobson nor had I heard of the show"Broad City". I was going into reading this blindly and I can happily say that it was well worth the read. This was an amazing read for me. Along with these essays being incredibly humorous and easy reads that fully captured my attention, Abbi was extremely relatable. Both in her personality along with her struggles in adulthood. Seriously, I was laughing along with some of the humorous recounts of these struggles acknowledging that I have definitely been in similar situations. In addition to the essays, I loved how there were also illustrations integrated. It felt as if you were along with the writer on her personal journey and were gathering snippets along the way. I would definitely recommend this to those that like to read real life stories from a relatable and humorous voice. Abbi Jacobson definitely has her own unique personality but as someone who also enjoys Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, I would definitely say they all fall into an equally enjoyable category. After reading this, I know I will definitely be checking out "Broad City" along with any future publications by Abbi. ***Thank you to Hachette Book Group and Grand Central Publishing for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refreshing! Such a good read! Felt like an intimate conversation with Abbi. Vulnerable, hilarious, and genuine. This book is a total “pick me up” and you can’t help but feel inspired while reading it. I have always loved her as a comedian and loved learning more about how Broad City came to be and what’s to come in the future. Highly recommend! #IndigoEmployee

"Part travelogue, part diary, you come for the delightful observations about road snacks and the life-changing magic of tucking in your shirt, and stay for the endearingly honest, quirky reflections on life, love, art, and work."-Queerty
