Yokohama Threeway free pdf ""A strangely touching and engaging portrait of the artist as a young screwup."--"Booklist ""The ultimate joyride for those of us who enjoy cringe-worthy embarrassment, genuine pathos, and an overdosing amount of schadenfreude."--Michael Ian Black" Peering into life's cringe-worthy moments, best-selling author Beth Lisick excavates territory that most would rather ignore. Funny, odd, deeply personal, yet somehow universal, these are the kind of memories that haunt us all, the small awful moments of shame and humiliation that we'd rather forget than relive. Beth Lisick has made a career of opening her life to her readers in all of its messy, smart hilarity, but this type of story doesn't usually find its way into a memoir. With her trademark humor and sly intelligence, writing in short flashes the way these episodes tend to pop up in memory, Lisick recounts her most embarrassing moments with gusto. From a trick she played on a neighbor thirty years ago to what she accidentally blurted out at last night's dinner party, she explores the bad judgments and free-floating regrets that keep her up at night, and the result is a daring, candid, and wickedly funny collection of embarrassment embraced, the triumph of humor and perspective over everyday mortification. Writer, performer, and independent film actress Beth Lisick is the author of the "New York Times" best-selling comic memoir "Everybody Into the Pool" and the gonzo self-help manifesto "Helping Me Help Myself." More Praise for "Yokohama Threeway: " "This book is fucking great."--Kathleen Hanna, of Bikini Kill and The Julie Ruin "Speaking as someone who hates everything, I love this book."--James Greer, musician
