In this instant New York Times bestseller that's "boldly funny without being anti-mom" (In Touch), comedian and Chelsea Lately regular Jen Kirkman champions every woman's right to follow her own path--even if that means being "childfree by choice." In her debut memoir, actress and comedian Jen Kirkman delves into her off-camera life with the same snarky sensitivity and oddball humor she brings to her sold-out standup shows and the Chelsea Lately roundtable, where she is a writer and regular performer. As a woman of a certain age who has no desire to start a family, Jen often finds herself confronted (by friends, family, and total strangers) about her decision to be "childfree by choice." I Can Barely Take Care of Myself offers honest and hilarious responses to questions like "Who will take care of you when you get old?" (Servants ) and a peek into the psyche--and weird and wonderful life--of a woman who has always marched to the beat of a different drummer and is pretty sure she's not gonna change her mind, but thanks for your concern.
