Sassy, witty, profound and reassuring. All women—and men—should read this book.
A zippy, unabashed narrative confronting personal adversity with an equal mix of humor and sincerity… [I’m Fine... and Other Lies is] an extremely self-deprecating assault on a laundry list of proclivities, insecurities, and intimate fears many readers will easily relate to... Akin to the inner-critical narrative voice of Amy Schumer, Cummings’ observations expectedly tackle the uncomfortable and the embarrassing... with deflective humor and straight-up honesty, humility, and a keen sense of humanity.
Cummings’ crisp comedic voice is the driving force behind each essay, wherein the author regales with tales of the danger of self-deprecation and constant people pleasing. Her anecdotes are intimate and messy; she writes with candor... Fans will find a newfound trust and respect for this familiar voice.
