The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee

by Sarah Silverman - £9.99  Faber and Faber (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780571251278 | ISBN 10: 0571251277

Sarah Silvermanís father taught her to curse - at the age of three. She was a chronic bedwetter - until she was old enough to drive. She lost her virginity at age 19 - but didnít really know it.

These are just a few of the outrageous true tales that Silverman shares in her alternately hilarious and moving collection of autobiographical essays. With her signature taboo-breaking humour, Silverman writes on everything from her epic struggle with hairy arms ('there wasnít enough wax in the world') to the death of her infant brother ('it was Nanaís fault') and always leaves the reader with a smile.

Mixed in among the essays are scores of embarrassing photos, mortifying childhood diary entries, and truly humiliating e-mails to and from her comedian friends.
