Introducing Jessi Klein, a Nora Ephron for a new generation. Both a tomboy and a late bloomer, she grew up always feeling like more of an observer than a participant in the rites of modern femininity. You’ll Grow out of It is a funny and incisive collection of real life stories in which Klein explores the milestones of the twenty-first-century woman: from trying to sculpt the perfect butt (one that looks like two floating tennis balls), to attempting to find watchable porn (the kind where no one cries), and deconstructing Oprah’s obsession with taking baths (there’s no place on dry land where women are left alone). Throughout the journey, Klein’s voice is both hilariously relatable and raw.

“A gifted comedian turns the anxieties, obsessions, insecurities, and impossible-to-meet expectations that make up human nature into laughter.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Jessi Klein gives voice to the tumult of being a late bloomer who grows up to become a smart woman in Hollywood. Her reflections on the double standards for women’s beauty and the pains of growing older under a microscope are told to the listener in a casually confiding way. Profanity and self-deprecation are sprinkled liberally throughout the pithy chapters. Klein bares all in an honest, level tone, revealing the heartache of breakups and infertility treatments. The result is a hip feminist anthem told in the sarcastic tone of an older sibling.” AudioFile
