NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER NAMED A BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR BY: NPR, ESQUIRE, The LA Times, and NEWSWEEK WINNER OF THE STRANGER GENIUS AWARD Shrill is an uproarious memoir, a feminist rallying cry in a world that thinks gender politics are tedious and that women, especially feminists, can't be funny. Coming of age in a culture that demands women be as small, quiet, and compliant as possible--like a porcelain dove that will also have sex with you--writer and humorist Lindy West quickly discovered that she was anything but. From a painfully shy childhood in which she tried, unsuccessfully, to hide her big body and even bigger opinions; to her public war with stand-up comedians over rape jokes; to her struggle to convince herself, and then the world, that fat people have value; to her accidental activism and never-ending battle royale with Internet trolls, Lindy narrates her life with a blend of humor and pathos that manages to make a trip to the abortion clinic funny and wring tears out of a story about diarrhea. With inimitable good humor, vulnerability, and boundless charm, Lindy boldly shares how to survive in a world where not all stories are created equal and not all bodies are treated with equal respect, and how to weather hatred, loneliness, harassment, and loss, and walk away laughing. Shrill provocatively dissects what it means to become self-aware the hard way, to go from wanting to be silent and invisible to earning a living defending the silenced in all caps.… (mer)

I wanted to read the book before I started the TV series. Lindy, a comedian and self-proclaimed feminist, takes on tough topics like abortion, rape culture, misogyny, and body image. She makes her points very well and sometimes in a humorous way. I did enjoy the book, but I felt, at times, that it could be a bit preachy. I did like it enough, though, that I do want to read other titles by her. ( )

If you're ready to think deeply and perhaps differently about issues such as feminism, body positivity, and comedy as having a social conscience, I highly recommend this read/listen.

West constructs her memoir around themes that spring from her lived experience. As a huge fan of the personal non-fiction genre (personal essay), this title resonated deeply. Not because I have so much in common with West—I'm from a different generation, different geography, different body shame experience—but because West writes and thinks with such an evident attention to synthesizing ideas, evaluating lived experiences, and speaking about feelings as valid frameworks for arguments when juxtaposed with what a culture at large or one individual reveals about their unexamined bias. And because West is out to move the needle toward greater kindness, inclusivity, and understand as a world builder.

Thought provoking and entertaining, West compelled me to examine my own learned biases toward fat people (Hello, I am Fat) and what society expects of women as daughters/partners/work colleagues (the entire book). ( )

This is like Bad Fat Black Girl but without the Black perspective. It's feminist but not always intersectional, and deals with body image and how women are perceived in the world. It really isn't fair to call this Shrill, as there is nothing odd or loud about what she is saying. But I get that she is playing into what the world projects on her, that fat women with opinions are meant to be quiet, so saying anything at all is unwelcome. I did like the commentary on comedy and rape culture, that was a topic I haven't read about much yet, even if it's hard not to be aware of it in general. ( )

So glad she wrote it and so glad I read it. ( )

I keep seeing Shrill pop up on my TV but haven't been able to bring myself to give it a shot. I think it's the title. I'm not a fan of shrillness, even when I can embody it at times.

Luckily, I am a fan of my library and their audiobook collection. And that's how I can to listen to this great memoir by Lindy West, someone I don't remember ever hearing of before. I'm glad to have learned about her and count myself as a fan now, even though there was no shrillness in her narration.
