I repeat the sentiments to anyone prospectively wanting to read it. There is a lot of swearing and references to sex with homeless men. However, that is what gives it the charm. The book goes places where many won’t go and that is the charm of it. Wong goes in depth about the real side of childbirth and having babies or what it’s like to make it in stand up comedy. She is brutally honest and doesn’t sugar coat anything. It’s refreshing and I highly recommend listening to the audiobook. Wong and her husband both read their respective parts and I really love that authenticity that they both give to it.
Personally my favorite part was the afterword by Hakuta, Wong’s husband. He talks a lot about how he had to learn to change his own perceptions about his life with Wong and their respective careers. However, he makes it abundantly clear that the girls are his favorite part of his life and that in moments he spends with them he constantly thinks this is the best moment of my life. It was a sweet and touching way to give their kids memories while also sharing a look into their personal lives.
