Comedian. Icon. TV star. Role model. Trash talker. Fag hag. Gypsy. Tramp. Thief. Margaret Cho displays her numerous sides in this funny, fierce, and honest memoir. As one of the country’s most visible Asian Americans, she has a unique perspective on identity and acceptance. As one of the country’s funniest and most quoted personalities, she takes no prisoners. And as a warm and wise woman who has seen the highs and lows of life, she has words of encouragement for anyone who has ever felt like an outsider. With I’m the One That I Want, Margaret Cho has written a book every bit as hilarious, shocking, and insightful as she is.
Margaret Cho was born in 1968 and raised in San Francisco. She currently lives in Los Angeles with her dog, Ralph (pronounced Rafe, as in Fiennes).From the Hardcover edition.

Editorial Reviews

“[A] beautiful book . . . It is innately empowering, honest, and raw.”–ROSIE O’DONNELL“REAL AND REVEALING . . . What makes Cho’s book resonate is the razor-sharp honesty she deploys and the straight-ahead style she uses to chronicle her messed-up life. Her humor is in no short supply.”–Los Angeles Times Book Review“A COMPELLING, QUICK READ THAT WILL SATISFY CHO’S FANS AND INSTANTLY MAKE NEW ONES.”–The New Orleans Times-Picayune
