Notaro's memoir is plain spoken with a sort of tossed off humor, just like her comedy. It starts with her mother's death (I think it does, since NYPL snatched this one back, too, before I had a chance to write my review), goes back to Notaro's beginning up through when she starts doing stand-up. Then it zooms forward, IMO cheating the reader of some of the good stuff about Notaro establishing herself, to Notaro immobilized with what turns out to be C-Diff, her mom's death, and Notaro's diagnosis with breast cancer.
There are no spoilers here if you've seen Notaro's comedy special, or heard about it. It's just the telling, and since I lost my bookmarks, I can't tell you what I particularly liked about it.
