“Sex with my first boyfriend was a little bit like learning how to put in a tampon, but only half as enjoyable!”
Daily Show correspondent Samantha Bee’s memoirs are a funny and often cringe-worthy account of her journey from a Jesus-obsessed preteen (raised by a mother, grandmother and great grandmother) to a thieving teenager (with her Croatian boyfriend whose family hated Samantha and all things Canadian) to her breakthrough into acting (working as a Sailor Moon knockoff in a children’s show). It’s very silly and lighthearted. Samantha pokes a lot of fun at her family, but it’s obvious that there’s a lot of love there. She also enjoys making fun of herself, and that’s where the book really shines. I Know I Am, But What Are You? won’t take you long to read, and will make you crack up quite a bit. Definitely worth a read.
