Introducing the prose of Jessi Klein, a Nora Ephron for a new generation.
Both a tomboy and a late bloomer, Jessi grew up always feeling like more of an observer than a participant in the rites of modern femininity. You’ll Grow Out Of It is a riotous and incisive collection of real life stories in which Klein explores the milestones of the twenty first century woman: from trying to sculpt the perfect butt (one that looks like two floating tennis balls), to attempting to find watchable porn (the kind where no one cries), to deconstructing Oprah's obsession with taking baths (there's no place on dry land where women are left alone.) You’ll Grow Out Of It is hilarious, relatable and refreshingly candid.
‘Jessi Klein is a brilliant comedic mind and this book is a perfect reflection of that. It's like having a glass of wine with the best friend you wish you had.’ —Amy Schumer
‘You’ll Grow Out Of It does an amazing job making me understand what my life might be like if I were a woman. Or if I were Jessi Klein. I laughed. Lots. Not at what it’s like to be a woman! That would be sexist. I laughed at the parts that you’re supposed to. Which are plentiful. Because Jessi Klein is truly really funny.’ —Ira Glass, Host & producer of This American Life
