    • Abstract:
      Summary: "When Broad City star Abbi Jacobson announced that she planned to drive across the country alone, she was met with lots of questions and opinions. Why wasn't she going with friends? Wouldn't it be incredibly lonely? The North route is better! Was it safe for a woman? The Southern route is the way to go! You should bring mace! And a common one: Why? But Abbi had always found comfort in solitude and needed space to step back and hit the reset button. As she spent time in each city and town on her way to Los Angeles, she mulled over the big questions: What do I really want? What is the worst possible scenario in which I could run into my ex? How has the decision to wear my shirts tucked in been pivotal in my adulthood? In this collection of anecdotes, observations, and reflections, readers are in the passenger seat on a fun and ultimately inspiring journey. With some original illustrations by the author." -- (Source of summary not specified)

Booklist Reviews 2018 November #1

If heartbreak sent Jacobson hurtling across the country on a road trip of self-discovery in the summer of 2017, she knew she was also craving the time alone to contemplate her life after Broad City. She'd just wrapped up the second-to-last season of the show—the culmination of so much creative dreaming and hard work—that made her and her real-life and onscreen best friend, Ilana Glazer, famous. Taking the southern route from New York to L.A., Jacobson pauses in places like Memphis, Austin, Marfa, and Santa Fe, and she has her aura read in Sedona. Blending memoir into her road-trip diary-of-sorts (which features her own illustrations), she walks readers through the time-stamped inanities of her persistent insomnia, some of which involve the heartbreaking ex, a woman who introduced Jacobson to a new and deeper sexual self-identity. Readers should expect to laugh; Jacobson frequently interrupts herself to tell jokes, which, unerringly, land. But her familiar voice comes across even more affectingly in passages about her admiration for her mom and best friend, and how she's learning to better love herself.
