In her second book, Robinson (Two Dope Queens podcast; You Can't Touch My Hair) takes on topics such as interracial dating and issues of race still inherent within modern feminism. In more lighthearted prose, the author also describes meeting heroes such as Oprah and Bono and spending a day with Julia Roberts and her family on their yacht. Throughout, Robinson maintains her etymological quirks and humorous abbreviations as well as an unapologetic directness in her opinions peppered with wit and a unique gift for mixing erudite commentary with pop-culture observations, resulting in highly entertaining word pictures.
VERDICT Robinson's collection will appeal to fans of her previous work as well as those who enjoy sociopolitical essays sprinkled with a generous dash of humor.
