"Lenore Zion takes readers on a journey down the rabbit hole of the human condition. It is beautiful. It is ugly. And it is brilliant." Tom Hansen, author of "American Junkie" "Zanily macabre, refreshingly irreverent, unimpeachably funny, Lenore Zion is living proof of Oscar Wilde's assertion that there are no dull subjects, only dull writers, because damn it, "her" dead pets "are" interesting." Greg Olear, author of "Fathermucker" and "Totally Killer" "Zion's fearless writing mirrors what's disgusting and great about the human condition." Tony DuShane, author of "Confessions of a Teenage Jesus Jerk" "Reminiscent of David Sedaris' work in its wit, compassion, and honesty, but Zion's breathy, stream-of-consciousness confessional style is all her own. She reveals her most hilarious thoughts on topics ranging from face cancer to elder care." Summer Block "The most disquieting, surprisingly poignant and shockingly honest stories you will ever do yourself the favor of reading." Kimberly M. Wetherell, award-winning filmmaker "A really really funny book. I suspect a small camera has been installed in each copy, and every time we laugh, Zion is taking notes, plotting her next triumph..." Nathan Pensky.
