|People Are Unappealing: Even Me|
People Are Unappealing: Even Me smirks at the mishaps and mayhem of author Sara Barron's darkly humorous coming-of-age through stories that are as hideously embarrassing as they are endearingly charming.
The title of this collection of autobiographical stories—about a smart, ambitious, pushing-30 waitress/writer—is a letdown: as acerbic as Sara Barron is, in the end, she’s not nearly unappealing enough. Winning personality is the last thing I expected from a girl whose opening chapter showcases her self-confessed lust for attention, but her childhood recollections of the giant menstrual pad in her swimsuit got me, and the teenage wrist brace from overenthusiastic masturbation kept me there.
