Yes Please

Amy Poehler, read by the author. HarperAudio, unabridged, 7 CDs, 7.5 hrs., $34.99 ISBN 978-0-06-235088-6
Comedian Poehler exudes her signature, lovably awkward charm in the audio edition of her collection of personal essays. Over the course of the book, she ruminates on a number of topics—from motherhood to her raise to fame on the Chicago and N.Y.C. comedy scenes, with plenty of tales from behind the scenes of Saturday Night Live and Parks and Recreation to boot. Her narration is as spontaneous as the anecdotes she shares, with her voice ranging from goofy and spastic to subdued. The audio edition features a host of guest narrators, including Poehler’s parents and fellow Saturday Night Live alum Seth Meyers, along with hysterical cameos from Patrick Stewart and Kathleen Turner (the latter is the voice of Poehler’s dark side, in short interrupting clauses throughout). Poehler frequently mentions her unease at writing a memoir but when it comes to reading that memoir she is clearly in her element. A Morrow/Dey Street hardcover. (Oct.)
