by Koelen

An audacious anthology including twisted tales of Disney defiling, twin murder, studying abroad, 13 car accidents, transgender love affairs, Hitler's assassination, barely avoiding arrest, pigeon adoption, and vaginal cuisine.


The love-child of Carrie Bradshaw and David Sedaris, Koelen puts new meaning into the term "living life to the fullest." His collection of sixteen autobiographical essays gives a hilariously raw and brutally honest look into the imperfect world around him. In every story, he grabs life by the balls and in true comedic form, he encourages his readers to do what he does: embrace living and dance in your underwear. "I've always said that if you don't like something about yourself, then change it. Make the effort to embrace what you truly want to be. Be who you really are. Life is too damn short to live under somebody else's rules or to give a high holy hell as to what other people think you should be. Embrace yourself: you've only got one of you."
