i know i am, but what are you?

Samantha Bee, read by the author, Simon & Schuster, unabridged, six CDs, 7 hrs., $29.99 ISBN 978-0-7435-9988-7
Daily Show senior correspondent Samantha Bee offers colorful (and off-color) anecdotes from a childhood lived (at various points) with her bohemian mother, orderly father and stepmother, and devout Catholic grandmother. She also describes misadventures during vacation; a short-lived career in children's entertainment; her dislike of her tiny, rapidly aging hands; as well as the inexplicably numerous encounters she's had with strange men who expose themselves. Both the text and the dry, matter-of-fact narration are consistently sympathetic and engaging, and Bee's imitation of her 13-year-old self—ending every sentence with that typical rising inflection—is absolutely hilarious. A Gallery hardcover. (June)
