Scrappy Little Nobody (Hardback)Anna Kendrick (author)
- We can order this
It’s possible that in ten years, every word here will send me into fits of humiliated paralysis. But the crazy wants out. Let’s do this.
I'm excited to publish my first book, and because I get uncomfortable when people have high expectations, I'd like to use this opportunity to showcase my ineptitude, pettiness, and the frequency with which I embarrass myself.
And while many of my female inspirations who have become authors are incredibly well-educated and accomplished comedy writers, I'm very, very funny on Twitter, according to Buzzfeed and my mom, so I feel like this is a great idea.
Quick question: are run-on sentences still frowned upon?
Wait, is ending a sentence with a preposition still frowned upon? I mean, upon frowned? Dammit!
Anna Kendrick's eagerly awaited first book, an autobiographical collection of essays, amusingly recounts memorable moments throughout her life, told at characteristic break-neck speed with a healthy dose of her own brand of deadpan wit.
From her middle-class upbringing in New England to the blockbuster movies that have made her one of the most popular actresses today, Kendrick expands upon the witty and ironic dispatches for which she is known.
One woman’s one-of-a-kind commentary on the absurdities of celebrity culture and the truth of life in the slipstream of Hollywood.
