Hilariously funny!! Open and honest. Urzilla covers a wide range of topics and issues that cropped up throughout her life and how they affected her and the world around us. Although funny, there are moments when you feel for her, as a child and again as an adult.
A quick easy enjoyable read, perfect for summer reading on the beach. Would appeal to fan's of Uzrila's brand of humor (which I enjoy!) Was surprised to read what a hard start to life she had & her grit, humor and optimism has enabled her to live life to the fullest.
In “Rolling with the Punches”, Urzila Carlson talks candidly about her childhood, her family, her abusive dad, and about growing up in South Africa. Her memoir is filled with humorous stories about both the big things in life, like Coming Out, and the little things, like a particularly traumatic waxing experience. But it’s not all laughter and lightness, Carlson also tells us some darker tales such as the incident that led to her decision to leave South Africa and move to New Zealand.
