Reviewer Rating:


I like to laugh and a little TMI (too much information) from a writer doesn't bother me. What surprised me is Notaro's ability to totally shift gears and write an essay like "Ready or Not." Not only is Notaro funny, especially in dialogue with her husband, she can also deftly move from Gladys Kravitz (if you are a youngster, watch reruns of Bewitched) storytelling to exposing raw emotion. She isn't David Sedaris or Augusten Burroughs which is okay. As a woman, she has different stories to tell.
