In this somewhat disjointed but appealing memoir, comedian Silverman chirpily narrates anecdotes about growing up Jewish in New Hampshire, her struggles with depression and bedwetting, her efforts to make it in comedy, the fun she's had working on her (now canceled) Comedy Central show, and coping with the controversy her jokes generate. Silverman's comic timing enhances the text; her little-girl voice clashes well with her exuberant love for crudity and fart jokes, and lends the more serious sections an unexpected poignancy. A Harper hardcover (Reviews, Mar. 29). (May)
