Jessi Klein is most well known for being the head writer on Inside Amy Schumer, but has also written for several other popular comedies (e.g. SNL, The Kroll Show). You’ll Grow Out of It is a memoir of essays from childhood to motherhood that will make you snort.
However, it is also full of good tips and general advice for life. For instance, Klein spends a chapter describing precisely why you should GET THE EPIDURAL. She also tells us about the (not so?) glamorous life of going to the Emmys shortly after having a child.
I (along with pretty much everyone I’m sure) wish there were more tidbits about the shows she has worked on. Surely there are funny things that have happened on at least one of these shows that could apply to the book!
All in all, You’ll Grow Out of It is a funny look at an awkward childhood and how Klein (sort of) grew out of it. I’d recommend this for light reading on vacation or to make you laugh while you’re waiting for your baby to pop out, drugged out on your epidural.
Thank you to the publisher for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
