Publisher's Summary

In What Would Susie Say?, Susie Essman sheds the crasser layers to reveal how she went from an anxiety-ridden, struggling stand-up comic to being one of the funniest women on television, playing Susie Greene on HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm. Emerging as one of the most successful performers in her field, Essman goes behind the scenes of a life in comedy with her funny cohorts, including Joy Behar, Rodney Dangerfield, and, of course, Jeff Garlin and Larry David, while also providing side-splittingly funny wisdom on a range of topics that she's highly unqualified to expound upon, including men, sports, hypochondria, and step parenthood.

Critic Reviews

"Of all the countless times in my life I've been directed to go fuck myself - from waiters to rabbis to trick-or-treaters to every woman I've ever gone out with - no one has done it with the panache and zeal of the fabulous Miss E. Sad to say, most of you will never experience that, but this book is the next best thing." (Larry David)
"I have been on the phone with Susie Essman for twenty-five years. In every conversation there is wit, there is insight, there is vetching. Now she shares all this with the world. I am no longer the lone recipient of her singular sagacity, perception, and luminosity. But I hold no malice. In fact, this stuff is so good, I even hope Rush Limbaugh and Dick Cheney read it." (Joy Behar)
"What Would Susie Say? made me laugh harder than I have in years. After reading it, you'll never be at a loss for words again." (Bette Midler)

Some insights, but not funny

I love Susie Essman. She is the best part of my favorite TV show (Curb Your Enthusiasm). But, after I got through the first 2 chapters without so much as an audible chuckle or a forced smile, I had to give up on it.
