I am a huge fan of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, the musical comedy series which Rachel Bloom co-created and starred in. It was just so damn real. And enormously funny at the same time. So, I was really excited to read Bloom’s book of essays which were just as hilarious and moving as I expected. (I also listened to the audio version which has lots of Bloom ad-libs and a bonus musical session.)
- The honesty and relatability
- The scope of the topics she covers: from being a theatre kid and mental health to growing up and Harry Potter fan fiction.
- The Harry Potter fan fiction!
I didn’t love:
- How short it was! I wanted more.
Would recommend it to:
Fans of the show, feminists, theatre kids, people who like comedy and who are not offended by stories of poo.
