The title drew me to this book. It is simply a person's twitter bio. It certainly got my attention. I would like to meet this person who promotes herself online like this. I never thought that Twitter could be a place to find humor. He uses the songs "Linger" by the Cranberries and "Wind Beneath My Wings" by Bette Midler and creates up some pretty funny fart jokes. He refers to beautiful women as yummy mummies. I realize that not everyone will find Rob's kind of humor appealing, but I think that he is funny.
This autobiography is about Rob Delaney's experiences in his life so far. He is a successful stand up comedian and writer. But, his life did not begin smoothly though. He started drinking alcohol at the age of twelve. His drinking problem caused car accidents and boat accidents. It also led to a stint in jail and rehab. This is where he finally conquered the disease. I have never had a problem with alcohol, but I have friends with an alcohol problem. I will happily share this book with them. This book will hopefully motivate them to stop drinking.
He spent one year of college studying in Paris. He took an art history class. Delaney makes references to two French paintings I looked at these paintings online, and I am interested in seeing more French art because of these paintings. The first is Jupiter and Semele. Jupiter is the king of the gods. Semele is a human being. The painting shows Semele sacrificing herself to Jupiter so that they can be lovers The second painting is entitled Le Jeune Martyre. This painting depicts a dead blond woman floating in a lake. The subject is kind of morbid, but the color and the artistic detail of this painting make it beautiful to look at.
Rob Delaney also writes about his love of Zankou chicken and a dish called chicken tarna. This is a chicken dish served with a garlic, cinnamon and nutmeg sauce. Delaney refers to this dish as being more satisfying as a sexual experience, so I would definitely enjoy eating this dish some day. I love any book that includes a chapter about food. This autobiography makes me laugh in some parts. It raises my interest in French art paintings.
