Short memoir which was alternately breezy and serious, funny and sobering. I'm not sure I liked it, exactly, but I found parts of it interesting. Her relationship with her father, a funny guy, was probably my favorite part, and her getting serious about her religion in middle age was, at least for me, a big snooze. ( )

I saw the author's stand-up act when I went to comedy clubs in the '70s. She's an ex of Jerry Seinfeld, who I also saw during that era. Since then, she's continued to do comedy and has written for TV. She also acquired a longtime female partner, adopted a son, and became an animal lover. I could not always relate, and the book wasn't riotously funny, but it had its moments. ( )

Carol is a stand-up comedienne who wrote a collection of humorous essays about life, her father, coming out, and dogs. Some anecdotes were funnier than others. ( )
