Jenny Slate is an actress, stand-up comedian, and author of LITTLE WEIRDS. Check out what she’s giving (and hopes to receive) this holiday season! From Jenny:
1) Sleepy Jones striped silk Pajamas (get the top and bottom separately or together) I treated myself to a pair of the blue and green striped pajamas, and I feel like Teddy Roosevelt in those suckers! Luxurious and classic and tailored so well that I actually wore the them out to dinner one night with a blazer over the outfit. FUNCTIONALLY FANCY.
2) A pint IN AN ACTUAL PINT GLASS of Buzzard’s Bay Brewery’s Golden Flounder IPA. This is a very important personal treat and I suggest we all give one to ourselves.
3) I hope that someone will give me a long, long strand, and I mean LONG strand of pearls or even fake pearls that I can wear the way the Isabella Stewart Gardner wore hers. Also I could wear my fancy pajamas (above) and add the pearls and again add a blazer and I’d just feel so good, I know it. I hope it happens.
4) I also want someone to give me a really complete spice set. Some sort of a spice rack with all of the basics already in there.
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Step into Jenny Slate's wild, unfiltered imagination in this "magical" (Mindy Kaling), "delicious" (Amy Sedaris), and "poignant" (John Mulaney) collection about love, heartbreak, and being alive -- "this book is something new and wonderful" (George Saunders).
You may "know" Jenny Slate from her new Netflix special, "Stage Fright," or as the creator of Marcel the Shell, or as the star of "Obvious Child." But you don't really know Jenny Slate until you get bonked on the head by her absolutely singular writing style. To see the world through Jenny's eyes is to see it as though for the first time, shimmering with strangeness and possibility. As she will remind you, we live on an ancient ball that rotates around a bigger ball made up of lights and gasses that are science gasses, not farts (don't be immature). Heartbreak, confusion, and misogyny stalk this blue-green sphere, yes, but it is also a place of wild delight and unconstrained vitality, a place where we can start living as soon as we are born, and we can be born at any time. In her dazzling, impossible-to-categorize debut, Jenny channels the pain and beauty of life in writing so fresh, so new, and so burstingly alive, we catch her vision like a fever and bring it back out into the bright day with us, and everything has changed.
