Little Weirds | Jenny Slate
post image

Deeply loving this on audio, read by Jenny. As other Littens have noted, the author‘s style is unique. I recommend reading in small doses, no more than one or two weirds a day, for maximum appreciation. YMMV.

Wondering if anyone‘s actually read /this/ edition?

julesG Here! Me! And I'm not even Scottish. I would so love to have David Tennant narrate this as an audiobook. 😁😁😁 2mo
rabbitprincess I need this! It would go nicely with my Scots edition of The Twits (aka The Eejits). 2mo
MCYmermaid I know the rights process would be impossible— but maybe even David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck reading it? 🤣🤣🤣 2mo

This biography/ memoir of O‘Meara‘s journey researching her subject was excellent on audio. I also recommend having the print book, for the archival photos. I particularly appreciated the in depth info & context of some of the other influential woman in Milicent‘s life.
