Summary

This hilarious, whip-smart collection of essays from a top writer and producer of Six Feet Under crisscrosses from the highly personal (conflating her own loss of virginity and the Kobe Bryant accusations), to the political (what she has in common with Monica and Chandra), to the outrageously Los Angelean (why women wear huge diamonds and what they must do to get them). Tiny Ladies in Shiny Pants is a genre-defying combination of personal essay and memoir, or a hilarious, unruly and unapologetic evaluation of society, religion, sex, love, and - best of all - Jill Soloway.

Another Author Read Failure!

If I could get past Jill Soloway's mocking, valley girl narrative I might have enjoyed this book as the description was right up my alley. She did that annoying thing? Where every sentence? Ended in a question mark? Ugh. I love anything Hollywood or entertainment driven. Her narration was so irritating I could only stomach about an hour before I was so over it I had to turn it off. Back to the Audible home page!!!

This was awful.

This book was hard to get through, in fact, I abandoned it at the appendices. It's boring and unfunny. Parts are off while others are downright strange and uncomfortable. In an era where female comedians are writing hilarious tales of their endearing oddities, this book comes in with off putting anecdotes and unrelatable humor. It felt like a punishment to myself trying to finish this listen and in the end I just gave up.
