  • Heartbreak
  • A French-kissing rabbit
  • A haunted house
  • Death
  • A vagina singing sad old songs
  • Young geraniums in an ancient castle
  • Birth
  • A dog who appears in dreams as a spiritual guide

  • The ghost of a sea captain
  • And more
I hope you enjoy these little weirds.

Love,

Jenny Slate

Reader Reviews

Praise

"This book is something new and wonderful--honest, funny, positive, completely original, and inspiring in the very best way: it made me remember I was alive."—George Saunders
"Jenny's writing is magical and stylish, just like her. Each essay in Little Weirds feels like a vivid, cinematic experience, full of original observations and unexpected laughs."—Mindy Kaling
"This book is like a stovetop goulash, delicious and varied ingredients, prepared perfectly and excellent with bread...I'm sorry, I lost track of the simile."—Amy Sedaris
"A man on the 2 Express Train read some of Jenny Slate's Little Weirds over my shoulder. 'What kind of book is this?' he asked. 'The best kind,' I replied."—John Mulaney
"Luminous, emotional, lovely, and a little mysterious, this book is something you will savor like a half-remembered, gorgeous dream. You'll finish it feeling like Jenny Slate is your new best friend."—Susan Orlean
"Jenny's writing is wide open, tuneful, tender. She sees the world (and feels the world) like a bug might, two antennae poking out from her head like sensory wands. Reading Little Weirds made me feel tipsy."—Durga Chew-Bose, author of Too Much and Not the Mood
"A singularly hilarious and horny, but also poignant and tender, collection of writing that beautifully captures Slate's inimitable voice, which is one that, once you've heard it, you want to listen to forever."—Kristen Iversen, Nylon
