Abstract:

Chelsea Handler meets Nora Ephron in this uproarious memoir from the acclaimed actress and comedian.

Wentworth takes us through the looking glass and into the wonderland of her life, from a childhood among Washington's elite to a stint in the psych ward they called a New England prep school; days doing L.A. sketch comedy to a series of spectacularly failed loves that eventually led her to Mr. Right. Constant throughout is her mother, Muffie-- a flawlessly elegant yet firm, no-nonsense force of nature and pure WASP convictions.
