About the Book: From the charming and wickedly funny co-creator and star of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” a collection of hilarious personal essays, poems, and even amusement park maps on the subjects of insecurity, fame, anxiety, and much more. Rachel Bloom has felt abnormal and out of place her whole life. In this exploration of what she thinks makes her “different,” she’s come to realize that a lot of people also feel this way—even people who she otherwise thought were “normal.” In a collection of laugh-out-loud funny essays, all told in the unique voice (sometimes singing voice) that made her a star, Rachel writes about everything from her love of Disney, OCD and depression, weirdness, and Spanx to the story of how she didn’t poop in the toilet until she was four years old. Rachel’s pieces are hilarious, smart, and infinitely relatable (except for the pooping thing).

About the Author: Rachel Bloom is best known as the star and co-creator of the CW musical dramedy, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” for which she earned a Golden Globe and Critics Choice Award for her performance as Rebecca Bunch, as well as an Emmy Award for the show’s songwriting. As a live performer, she has sold out Radio City Music Hall and The London Palladium and recently had a residency at the Just for Laughs comedy festival. In April, she played Barb in the movie TROLLS WORLD TOUR. She will be writing the music and lyrics for “The Nanny” on Broadway.
