Overview

Stefanie Wilder-Taylor has never been one to take the conventional route. Whether financing a move to L.A. with only a best friend’s bat mitzvah savings, accidentally free-basing cocaine, or disproving her mother’s "cars aren’t free" refrain by winning one on Hollywood Squares, Stefanie is living proof that the unlikely can happen—usually to her. In this hilariously irreverent collection of true-life essays, she shares her triumphs, missteps, and the many lessons learned en route from life as a nice Jewish girl in Queens to life as a Hollywood producer, writer, and mother of three. Self-skewering, hopeful, and wise, It’s Not Me, It’s You is personal storytelling at its funniest, bravest, and most irresistible.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
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.
From the Publisher
"And you thought my life was outlandish." — Tori Spelling

"More fun than an all little person nativity scene." — Chelsea Handler
