Book 21 of 52 -- Sarah Silverman's The Bedwetter

Ok, I admit to being totally smitten with Sarah Silverman. I find her smart, funny, clever, ironic, outspoken, and cute as a button.

So it's no surprise I would be receptive to her book.

Sure it's a quick read, and there are lots of photos and other nonsense, but she offers plenty of insight too, on her life growing up a Jew in very gentile New Hampshire, her problems with depression and bedwetting, and her rise through the comic ranks in New York, through SNL, Jesus is Magic, and finally her hilarious (now cancelled) Comedy Central show. She also touches on some controversies in her career and explains quite directly why she doesn't plan on making fun of Mohamed any time soon.

A fun, easy read.
