Agorafabulous by Sara Benincasa...R&G!

Do I have a hoot of a book to tell you about today....Agorafabulous is well, fabulous!  Here is the scoop...

I subscribe to the notion that if you can laugh at the sh**tiest moments in your life, you can transcend them. And if other people can laugh at your awful s**t as well, then I guess you can officially call yourself a comedian.”
In Boston, a college student fears leaving her own room—even to use the toilet. In Pennsylvania, a meek personal assistant finally confronts a perpetually enraged gay spiritual guru. In Texas, a rookie high school teacher deals with her male student’s unusually, er, hard personal problem. Sara Benincasa has been that terrified student, that embattled employee, that confused teacher—and so much more. Her hilarious memoir chronicles her attempts to forge a wonderfully weird adulthood in the midst of her lifelong struggle with agoraphobia, depression, and unruly hair.


Relatable, unpretentious, and unsentimental, Agorafabulous! celebrates eccentricity, resilience, and the power of humor to light up even the darkest corners of our lives. (There are also some sexy parts, but they’re really awkward. Like really, really awkward.)

Sara Benincasa is hilarious.  Obviously, mental illness is no joke but this memoir makes you laugh WITH Sara as she maneuvers through life with tough hurdles to cross.  I love that she has taken humor as a way handle her illness and to overcome her struggles.  She is witty and raw and I was laughing out loud at her vivid and wild musings!  I also felt her pain shine through during those darker times of her life.  Agorafabulous is a testament to the power of laughter and one that I heartily recommend! Pick up your copy today on Amazon...

I'd like to read it myself but I'm pretty sure my wife will get into it too. Probably first. Hopefully she won't lend it to a friend before I get my chance.
