Overview

Stefanie Wilder-Taylor has never been one to take the easy, conventional route. In her latest work It’s Not Me, It’s You, she unabashedly showcases a life well lived, ignoring all wisdom, but yet somehow, coming out on top. Combining her trademark biting wit and straightforward common sense, the anticipated comedic memoir delivers outrageous tales from all periods of her life and family history.

From Taylor’s outlook on working hard (audition for a game show instead) to getting her husband to propose (forget The Rules: try nagging and physical violence) these stories venture beyond daycare, sure to entertain both parents and non-parents alike.

Covering a wide range of topics that explore the anxiety, frustration, and exhaustion that accompany the rewarding, comical, awe-inspiring, and life-altering roles of parent, teenager, wife, and daughter, It’s Not Me, It’s You offers readers an escape, empathy, and plenty of laughs.

Editorial Reviews

This is the memoir of a nice Jewish girl from Queens who, with a few detours, therapists and acts of questionable judgment, became a successful Hollywood producer, writer, and mother of three. As Stefanie Wilder-Taylor reflects on her life, it's obvious that she has already decided that the past is best approached with a keen sense of its absurdity and, preferably, a glass of robust Chardonnay. It's Not Me, It's You is irreverent, hilarious, and a perfect chaser to books by the likes of Chelsea Handler.
