Synopsis:
Let's get one thing straight. I'm not. I'm out and proud. When I'm out and it's raining I carry an umbrella. I used to be in but I hate the smell of mothballs. My closet was huge, complete with a foyer, turnstile, a few dead bolts, and a burglar alarm that had to be deactivated before I could even touch the door handle. And then there was the storm door. It wasn't until I had lived and slept with a woman for a year that it occurred to me to ask, "Do you think we're lesbians?" By the way, never come out to your father in a moving vehicle.

Now I've written a book. It's not as easy as it looks. One night, I was working late on my computer when a little message came up on the screen, "You are almost out of memory." Here are my thoughts and observations on everything from gay marriage (Mad Vow Disease) to my morbid fear of mascots (with the exception of the San Diego Chicken). That's all I'm going to say because I don't want to spoil it for you. That's a job for Jesse Helms.

Review:
"Normally I wouldn't pick up a memoir written by a comic because I think they're generally much funnier doing their routines on stage than they are in print. But on the recommendation of a friend/co-worker, I picked it up and was genuinely impressed at how well Clinton's delivery and humor came through on the page. I liked the headings that she gave to each chapter, my favourite one being 'eduKate.' Her tales of teaching her class Macbeth and trying to get their attention by riding the power mower across the lawn, had me cracking up. I think she could write another book just on her teaching experiences. I so enjoyed the book that I called friends up as I reading to quote them passages. I hope I have the opportunity to catch her in person soon."

- Shani Friedman

From the Publisher

Review:
"Kate Clinton cracks me up."
--Melissa Etheridge

"She's funny, she's smart, she's gay. Read her book."
--Ellen DeGeneres

"Girls with mascara--watch out! Kate will have it running down your cheeks in no time flat. She reminds me of every mouthy Catholic girl I ever knew in high school. You know, the one who got you in trouble for making you laugh during study hall. Thank heaven Kate did get started. She makes the world a funnier place."
--Rosie O'Donnell

"Laugh out loud funny. For those of us who have watched Kate Clinton perform over the years, it's great to finally have her hilarious takes on life, love, and politics between the covers of this riotous book!"
--Caroline Hirsch, Caroline's Comedy Club

"Kate Clinton manages the neat trick of being deliciously sane. Her book is a joy, filled with tasty, politically dangerous thoughts; Kate is the person you want to sit next to in the back row."
--Paul Rudnick
