Save Yourself : Essays - by Cameron Esposito (Paperback)
about this item
From rising comedy star Cameron Esposito, called "the future of comedy" by none other than Jay Leno, a book of essays that tackle the big issues explored in her comedy, including gender, sexuality and feminism--and how her Catholic childhood prepared her for a career as an outspoken lesbian comedian in ways the Pope never could have imagined.
Cameron Esposito is on her way to becoming a household name, thanks to her unique brand of comedy that doesn't shy away from the issues women (and many men) face today. From sexism and sexuality to white male privilege and self acceptance, Cameron uses humor to break down the barriers that keep us from speaking openly about these topics. Cameron offers funny and insightful essays about everything from coming out (at a Catholic college where being gay can get you expelled) to planning a wedding with two brides (who don't wear dresses) to accepting yourself for who you are--even if you're an awkward tween with an eyepatch (which Cameron was). Full of heart, humor, and cringe-worthy stories anyone who has gone through puberty can relate to, Cameron's debut collection is for that timid Catholic kid in all of us--and the fearless standup yearning to break free.
