Again, tough to give a numeric rating. Overall I really dug the memoir, but I suppose some might not enjoy the occasional page- or two-long non sequiturs, which recall the comic strip format that Wertz emerged from (with Fart Party). There is a narrative arc here but it sometimes fades, again, into random, observational strip-like riffs. I happened to like those, though, and I think a lot here resonated for me: it was mainly comforting to see a 20something adult, clearly intelligent and interesting, slip into a rather unabashed slacker lifestyle after college. Definitely even more reassuring to see that there are funny, liberal women out there like that.
