At first I was worried that Seth was writing a book, because I was like, Oh no! What's he gonna say?' I was actually scared to even read it. But I'm very happy I did. It's not really a memoir, like I thought it might be. I guess it's more of a bunch of funny true stories? Does that make sense? He talks about doing stand-up when he was a kid (I drove him to all his shows!), his grandparents, high school, moving to LA, meeting some famous people, things like that. If I'm being honest, I really wish there wasn't so much drug talk. Why does he need all that! It's like, We get it!' And some of the stories? I mean, they're entertaining, but I was just shocked they happened & he never told me! Overall, I think it's more sweet & funny than anything, so I like it, & I'm glad he wrote it, but I'd be even more glad if he called me more. -Sandy Rogen, Seth's mother
Hi! I'm Seth! I was asked to describe my book, Yearbook, for the inside flap (which is a gross phrase) & for websites & shit like that, so here it goes!!!
Yearbook is a collection of true stories that I desperately hope are just funny at worst, & life-changingly amazing at best. (I understand that it's likely the former, which is a fancy book way of saying the first one.)
I talk about my grandparents, doing stand-up comedy as a teenager, bar mitzvahs, & Jewish summer camp, & tell way more stories about doing drugs than my mother would like. I also talk about some of my adventures in Los Angeles, & surely say things about other famous people that will create a wildly awkward conversation for me at a party one day.
I hope you enjoy the book should you buy it, & if you don't enjoy it, I'm sorry. If you ever see me on the street & explain the situation, I'll do my best to make it up to you.
