A hilarious and emotional personal account of the life, times, mistakes, and crippling codependence of comedian, producer, director, actress, and writer Whitney Cummings. After getting her start as a stand-up comic and then breaking out with the wildly successful CBS sitcom 2 Broke Girls (she’s the co-creator, writer, and executive producer), Whitney Cummings has seen a few things and is turning to the written word to tell us all the stuff she’s too scared to say on stage. Full of intellect, pathos, and profundity, I’m Fine…And Other Lies is, in Whitney’s words, her first book, which means her last date. With her signature incendiary edge and self-deprecation, Whitney comes clean about what has shaped her into the trailblazing comic that she is today. She recounts her struggles with codependence, love addiction, workaholism, eating disorders, and vagina steaming. This intimate, no-holds-barred look at Whitney’s mistakes and subsequent life lessons makes for juicy schaudenfraude, no doubt. However, it’s also an astute, poignant, and most importantly, honest tale of what it means to live in today’s world and Twittersphere, with all the insecurities and anxieties that come with that territory. That said, at end of the day, no matter her situation, she’s fine. And other lies.

“A book about being, well, not fine—and what to do when you find yourself with brutal anxiety and a co-dependency disorder; all in her trademark wit, humor, and honesty. This book, however, is fine as hell.” Sophia Amoruso, New York Times bestselling author
