Publisher's Summary

Hailed by Lena Dunham as an "essential (and hilarious) voice for women", Lindy West is ferociously witty and outspoken, tackling topics as varied as pop culture, social justice, and body image. Her empowering work has garnered a coast-to-coast audience that eagerly awaits Shrill, her highly anticipated literary debut.
West has rocked the public in work published everywhere from The Guardian to GQ and heard on This American Life. She is a catalyst for a national conversation in a world where not all stories are created equal and not everybody is treated with equal respect. Shrill is comprised of a series of essays that bravely share her life, including her transition from quiet to feminist-out-loud, coming of age in a popular culture that is hostile to women (especially fat, funny women), and how keeping quiet is not an option for any of us.

Necessary and delightful

Lindy West's is a voice we need and I'm so happy her book is in the world. If you're a fan, some of these essays will be familiar, but they're enriched a great deal by being presented all together. She's funny and trenchant on the topics she's best known for, but a lot of my favorite moments were the more personal ones. Her account of her father's death and the work she and her now-husband did to build their love and make a family both brought tears to my eyes. Also great to have this on audiobook because her delivery is so great. Put her in a Pixar movie! Wonderful vocal performance. Lindy, we love you.

I love this woman

I am a long time audiobook fan (I like to read with my ears) but I have never binged listened to any book before this. May Lindy West continue to lead platoons of strong, smart, out spoken women whose armor and weapons are their wit and hilarity.
