Summary
A comedian's account of her battle with agoraphobia. In Boston, a college student fears leaving her own room - even to use the toilet. In Pennsylvania, a meek personal assistant finally confronts a perpetually enraged gay spiritual guru. In Texas, a rookie high school teacher deals with her male student's unusually, er, hard personal problem. Sara Benincasa has been that terrified student, that embattled employee, that confused teacher -- and so much more. Her hilarious memoir chronicles her attempts to forge a wonderfully weird adulthood in the midst of her lifelong struggle with agoraphobia, depression, and unruly hair. Relatable, unpretentious, and unsentimental, this book celebrates eccentricity, resilience, and the power of humour to light up even the darkest corners of our lives
Summary
The comedian and radio host recollects her experiences with agoraphobia and how she, with the help of her friends and family who drew her back from the edge, broke free from fear to live the life she was meant to live
