The hirsute heroine of last year's hit Kindle Single Bearded Lady has found herself on the precipice of failure. A rejected novel has sent newly-married Mara Altman into a tailspin of questioning and self-doubt. Should she stop racing forward, and settle down to start a family? Or should she give her quest for success another shot? With a gimlet eye trained directly on herself, Altman recounts her wild experience of becoming a standup comedian. By turns comic and cosmic, the 31-year-old Altman's search for a new path — and fresh answers — yields a joke-filled journey towards an unexpected and life-affirming finish line.More
Rejection is one of our most feared outcomes in life. Rejection, however, can also catapult us onto new paths. This is exactly what happens in Mara Altman's That's What She Said. After her editor trashes her newest novel, Altman gets crushed with self-doubt. Should she can the writing life? Should she start a family? With a playful and frank performance, listeners follow Altman as she sets on her latest journey, which, thanks to a few cocktails and friendly encouragement, is a funny and wild enterprise in stand-up comedy.
