9781478964872: Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman

Hailed by Lena Dunham as an ''essential (and hilarious) voice for women,'' Lindy West is ferociously witty and outspoken, tackling topics as varied as pop culture, social justice, and body image. West has rocked readers in work published everywhere from the Guardian to GQ to This American Life. She is a catalyst for a national conversation in a world where not all stories are created equal and not every body is treated with equal respect. Shrill is comprised of a series of essays that bravely shares her life, including her transition from quiet to feminist-out-loud, coming of age in a popular culture that is hostile to women (especially fat, funny women), and how keeping quiet is not an option for any of us.

Review:

"Lindy West is an essential (and hilarious) voice for women. Her talent and bravery have made the Internet a place I actually want to be. Thank you, Lindy."― Lena Dunham, #1 bestselling author of Not That Kind of Girl

"It made me hurt, both from laughing and crying. Required reading if you are a feminist. Recommended reading if you aren't."― Jenny Lawson, #1 bestselling author of Let's Pretend This Never Happened and Furiously Happy

"Hey reader! I thought I'd read enough in this lifetime about people's childhoods and feelings and such and I'd never want to do it again. But Lindy West is such a totally entertaining and original writer she kind of blew that thought out of my head halfway into the first chapter. I dare you to feel differently."― Ira Glass, This American Life

"It's literally the new Bible."― Caitlin Moran, NYT bestselling author of How to Be a Woman

"There's a reason Lindy West is such a beloved writer: she gets to the heart of impossible issues with humor and grace. West will have you cringing, laughing and crying, all within one page. Shrill is a must-read for all women."― Jessica Valenti, author of Why Have Kids and Full Frontal Feminism

"The surge of love and joy I felt while crylaughing through this book almost made my cold dead heart explode. Lindy is so smart and so funny that it almost hurts my little jealous-ass feelings. She is my most favorite writer ever."― Samantha Irby, author of Meaty

"Lindy West has written a really funny, insightful book that you all should buy. I would recommend reading it, too."― Andy Richter

"Lindy West can take almost any topic and write about it in a way that is smart, funny, warm, and unique."― Bustle

"Uproariously funny...Readers will delight in West's biting clarity....Despite its serious subject, West's ribald jokes, hilarious tirades, and raucous confessions keep her memoir skipping merrily along as she jumps from painful confession to powerful epiphany. Sure to be a boon for anyone who has struggled with body image, Shrill is a triumphant, exacting, absorbing memoir that will lay new groundwork for the way we talk about the taboo of being too large."― Booklist, Booklist

"In Shrill...West is utterly candid and totally hilarious....She's also quite moving...In an age in which Internet umbrage is almost as rampant as Internet trolling, West, as funny as she is incisive, distinguishes herself as a writer who cuts to the heart of the matter. Shrill is no exception."― Vogue.com

"One of the most impressive aspects of this book is the level of nuance, self-reflection, and humanity that West displays in her analysis of her own writing and her relationships with others.... She shows that you can be funny and mean and incisive and brilliant, and you can also be thoughtful and considerate and write with intention....Throughout, West proves herself to be a considerate and critical narrator with equal capacity for humor and genuine reflection-a writer who can turn her analytical eye just as easily to society as to her own life. It's the best kind of memoir, and it shows that Lindy West still has a lot more to say-and that we should all keep listening."― Bitch Media

"Lindy West did not set out to be a feminist warrior against the forces that wish to silence and hurt women for doing things that men take for granted... Someone has to fight the misogynists, after all, and West is well-situated for the front lines, lacing her blunt sense of humor with a surprising amount of nuanced empathy, even for those out there who are the ugliest to women."― Salon

"From her early stories to the hot-off-the-press pages of Shrill, there is one ever-present, never exhausted hallmark of West's writing, and that is its unwavering heart. Whether she's writing about being fat-shamed by a stranger or confronting the troll who posed online as her recently deceased father, West has a way of wringing empathy and catharsis out of even the most deplorable circumstances. Reading her book is like taking a master class in inclusivity and cultural criticism, as taught by one of the funniest feminists alive today." ― Refinery29

"Both sharp-toothed and fluid....To see so much of West's writing in one place is to appreciate her range. She can eviscerate the status quo with raunchy humor....She can attack entrenched sexism with skilled polemic....And she can leave both of those modes behind to write poignantly about growing up, losing her father, and falling in love....West is propulsively entertaining."

Slate

"In her incredible and insightful new book Shrill....West gets unflinchingly real about growing up fat and the harmful impact that the media (and its disdain for fat women) can have on young girls....what West ultimately strives for is to incrementally make those small changes that can lead to something so much bigger and better for us all."



Amy Poehler's Smart Girls

"This is who Lindy West is: A constantly harangued feminist writer ready to transmute your BS into comedy....you need to read [ Shrill]. It's hilarious, biting and wise."

Huffington Post

"[Lindy is] warm and cutting, vulnerable and funny in equal measures; her sense of self makes you yourself feel seen."― Buzzfeed

"A compilation of powerful and brave essays about coming-of-age in a world that's set on silencing girls and women."― Revelist
