Cynthia Kaplan takes us on a hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking journey through her unique, uncensored world—her bungled romantic encounters and unsung theatrical experiences; her gadget-obsessed father, her pill-popping therapist, and her eccentric grandmothers; her fearless husband, whom she engages in an ongoing battle over which of them is the most popular person in their apartment; and, of course, her vengeful, power-hungry one-year-old son.

Kaplan's voice is a lot like the one in our heads—the one that most of us are only willing to listen to late at night . . . maybe while locked in a closet. What a relief it is that someone finally admits that she is afraid of nearly everything; that she is jealous even of people whose lives are on the verge of collapse; and that she has, at times, tried to pass for a gentile.

Quickwitted, neatly written and unapologetically grandiose&in the spirit of Dorothy Parker&[Kaplan] renders weird and rowdy scenarios with style.This is a charming collection of essays in the spirit of David Sedaris&A fresh voice with a bright future.Knee-slapping hilarious&Fans of David Sedaris or Anne Lamott will appreciate (Kaplans) quirky way of looking at lifes intricacies.Funny, sweet, weirdly life-affirming and painfully true&Cynthia Kaplans gift is her ability to take on lifes absurdities and come out a winner.Kaplan consistently amuses while cutting surprisingly deep.When Kaplan is funny, shes very funny&Well worth reading.One of downtowns coolest actors . . . youll laugh until you cant breathe.Cynthia Kaplan is very funny. These piece are very, very funny.WHY IM LIKE THIS is an impressive debut and Kaplan has a wonderfully natural comedic style.WHY IM LIKE THIS is a collection of personal essays that are as funny as they are poignant.
