About Little Weirds:

Step into Jenny Slate’s wild imagination in this “magical” (Mindy Kaling), “delicious” (Amy Sedaris), and “poignant” (John Mulaney) New York Times bestseller about love, heartbreak, and being alive — “this book is something new and wonderful” (George Saunders). 

“Jenny Slate is an artist in the broadest sense of the word…Adjust your expectation of a run-of-the-mill memoir and ready yourself to drop straight into Slate’s imagination. Her ability to paint a meticulous mental picture with nothing but words on a page can only be described as gifted.”―ASSOCIATED PRESS

“A man on the 2 Express Train read some of Jenny Slate’s Little Weirds over my shoulder. ‘What kind of book is this?’ he asked. ‘The best kind,’ I replied.”―JOHN MULANEY

“A delight to read. It’s a collection of beautiful, hilarious, genuine essays and really is meant for times when you feel heavy. Slate jumps between deeply considering a dead deer on her parents property, to transcribing her borderline surrealist dreams, to poignantly investigating heartache and the forms it takes in such a genuine way I couldn’t help but feel that it was written by a friend for me.”―VANITY FAIR

“This book is a party. It’s a peppy procession of all my Little Weirds.”―JENNY SLATE, HERSELF
