It's Not Me, It's You: Subjective Recollections from a Terminally Optimistic, Chronically Sarcastic and Occasionally Inebriated Woman

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.

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

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.

    I Also Recommend:

    Funny, irreverent look at things a lot of us can relate to.

    Stefanie Wilder-Taylor's latest book packs a lot of laughs into a fairly small space. Though not very long, there are plenty of chuckles as she finds humor in a variety of situations, from the uncomfortable (dealing with her father, or doing drugs) to the every-day (dating). Through it all, she keeps the reader engaged with a first person style that makes the reader part of the story. Wilder-Tayler uses a fair amount of pop-culture references in her book from TV and music, so the laughs feel very current, and easy to relate to. There's some Dave Barry-esque exagerration in here, and some Celia Rivenbark-type humor as well, so fans of those writers will enjoy this book. Wilder-Taylor does use some adult language though, so parental guidance is advised. Overall, a fast-moving, fun read with enough painful moments to keep the whole thing believable. Definately worth the time.

    Not worth reading

    I was really looking forward to reading this book. From the prelims it sounded like it was going to be a fun, light book to read. WRONG. I kept waiting for the point, it didn't happen. I am sure we all have tales to tell of our adolescents that would make the stories in this book pale, but who cares?

    If I wanted to read someone's dairy, at least make it interesting.

    The Funniest Writer Ever

    Although I'm a long time fan of Stefanie, I was still amazed at how she totally outdid herself with this book. I hardly ever laugh out loud when reading--not even when it's Sedaris--but I found myself laughing over and over again with this one, and even reading parts aloud to my husband.

    I'm a writer myself, and must have thought, "Man, I wish I'd written that," about 100 times throughout this book. Stefanie is witty, snarky and sharp. And she's also heartfelt--a rare combination that makes for a fantastic book.
