I Can Barely Take Care of Myself: Tales from a Happy Life Without Kids

Author(s): Jen Kirkman


In her debut memoir, actress and comedian Jen Kirkman delves into her off-camera life with the same snarky sensitivity and oddball humor she brings to her sold-out standup shows and the "Chelsea Lately" roundtable, where she is a writer and regular performer. As a woman of a certain age who has no desire to start a family, Jen often finds herself confronted (by friends, family, and total strangers) about her decision to be "childfree by choice."" I Can Barely Take Care of Myself" offers honest and hilarious responses to questions like "Who will take care of you when you get old?" (Servants!) and a peek into the psyche--and weird and wonderful life--of a woman who has always marched to the beat of a different drummer and is pretty sure she's not gonna change her mind, but thanks for your concern.
