A Woman Trapped in a Woman’s Body


“…unflinchingly honest comic observation…Weedman’s complete surrender recalls the late Gilda Radner.”
—Seattle Weekly

In A Woman Trapped in a Woman’s Body, Lauren Weedman tells true, hilarious, and embarrassing stories of a girl gone wild. She’s the David Sedaris of heterosexual women. Her self-deprecating, confessional, and terribly funny voice finds a special place in the hearts of those who can relate to her–which, for better or worse, includes all of us. From the uproarious account of her time at The Daily Show, where she developed an entirely one-sided infatuation with Jon Stewart, to the time she read her boyfriend’s diary with disastrous results, Lauren’s work is filled with the wit, honesty, and personality that make for great personal writing.

“Lauren Weedman is godd@*m funny. For that reason alone you should buy this book. Because funny is the new beauty and so we must worship funny. Oh, and Weedman is beautiful too. It’s just so freaking unfair.”
—Dan Savage, author of The Commitment and Savage Love
“Relentlessly candid introspection combined with a ferocious wit.”
Los Angeles Times
“Oh my god Lauren Weedman. Is the funniest most brilliant nugget of female beauty alive… The only David Sedaris comparison I can think of is that soon he’ll be wishing he was the new her.”
—Jill Soloway, writer and co-executive producter of Six Feet Under and author of Tiny Ladies in Shiny Pants
