Essays. I had the feeling that I entered directly into Jenny Slate’s mind as I read her collection of essays titled after one of them, Little Weirds. As a talented comedian, she made me laugh. As a writer, I admired her phrases and images. As an artist, I appreciated the scope of her vast creativity, and how it plays out in each of these essays. The time I spent inside her mind while reading this novel was quite an adventure and escape. I enjoyed the book while I read it with a clear head, but I have the impression that if one were to read these essays while high, the experience might be enhanced.
Rating: Three-star (It’s ok)
