Description

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. Her empowering work has garnered a coast-to-coast audience that eagerly awaits Shrill, her highly anticipated literary debut.

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 quote

Lindy West stares defiantly into the eyes of anyone who reaches to pick it up and dares them not to shed any sexism they might harbor, whether conscious or not...Her writing is sharp, smart, hilarious, relatable, insightful and memorable. She tackles serious and personal subjects-like being fat, getting an abortion, feeling lonely or dealing with harassment online-and is just as capable of eliciting tears as laughter. The combination is part of what makes her voice so effective and absorbing....I dare you to pick up a copy.-- "Newsweek, Best Books of 2016"
