It even has photos, which are pure gold." - Shondaland "A smashing debut." - Lambda Literary "Greg Mania is the Cheesecake Factory of writers, and I say that with the utmost reverence: extravagant, unapologetic, hilarious, and f*cking good." - Lindy West, author of Shrill and The Witches Are Coming "This book is a hilarious wonder. Not only does it prove that Greg Mania was, indeed, born to be a public (and beloved) icon, but also that he was born to be a celebrated writer. It's sheer delight." - Alissa Nutting, author of Tampa and Made for Love
