The star of Bravo's new comedy Odd Mom Out and author of The Ex Mrs. Hedgefund and Wolves in Chic Clothing firmly believes in Woody Allen's magical math equation: Comedy = Tragedy + Time. Sometimes I Feel Like a Nut is a delightful collection of essays and observations based on Jill Kargman's family, her phobias (vans, mimes, clowns), and her ability to use humor as a tool to get past life's obstacles, making the fun times funnier and the tough times bearable. Fans of David Sedaris, Sloane Crosley, and Nora Ephron will rejoice, howl, and sympathize

Review quote

"A smart, pocket-sized delight that artfully engages the funny bone." -- Kirkus Review "With her sense of irony and humor, Ms. Kargman laughs at moments others might cry over...Sometimes I Feel Like a Nut is more than funny, more than insightful and more than a guilty read." -- New York Journal of Books "Jill Kargman's hilarious observations...will resonate with women everywhere." -- Harper's Bazaar "Please welcome the new David Sedaris, not that the old one is broken or anything. It's just that Jill Kargman, in her first book of essays, provides the same gut-splitting reading pleasure." -- Los Angeles Times "Edgy, addictive, and relatable." -- The Daily Beast "Kargman does not fail to deliver in yet another tragically comedic book . . . With stick figure doodlings in the margins to guide you through the hilarity, you'll be laughing out loud." -- "From somebody who shares Jill Kargman's fear of both vans and clowns, I promise this book will make you laugh out loud." -- Nate Berkus, host of The Nate Berkus Show and Oprah correspondent
