Praise for Stay Sexy & Don't Get Murdered
"All the best advice your mother never told you." --Jenny Lawson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Furiously Happy
"Kilgariff and Hardstark bring a much needed dimension to our current, true crime fever dream--an empathetic, slangy dose of acidic humor, weary compassion, and nervous hope. Their podcast is a joy to listen to and this book captures its energy and hilarity perfectly." --Patton Oswalt, New York Times bestselling author of Silver Screen Fiend
"In addition to being laugh-out-loud funny, smart, and incisive, Stay Sexy & Don't Get Murdered is so interesting and insightful that it made me a) want to be best friends with the authors and b) for real ask them to take me on as a therapy patient. This book is hilarious, honest, insightful, and clever as hell. Do yourself a fun favor by buying it and consuming it. You'll emerge at the final word as a new-and-improved badass version of your former self." --Megan Mullally, New York Times bestselling co-author of The Greatest Love Story Ever Told
"It's like an afternoon coffee date with your best friend that spills late into the night--where you share your darkest secrets and hardest-earned advice, and then emerge back into the world fully recharged. And ready to destroy toxic masculinity. Karen and Georgia are the voice of a movement--badass and vulnerable as hell--and this is their manifesto." --Stephanie Perkins, New York Times bestselling author of There's Someone Inside Your House
Praise for My Favorite Murder
"Wildly popular.... In many ways, the subversive charm of [My Favorite Murder] is today's answer to riot grrrl, the D.I.Y. feminist punk movement of the 1990s." --The New York Times
"[My Favorite Murder] empowers listeners by offering practical advice for survival and self-care and by using comedy to deflate the scariness of these topics." --TheAtlantic.com
"Morbid [and] mirthful." --Entertainment Weekly
"Truly next-level.... hilarious, brutally honest, and totally addicting." --Nylon.com
"Wildly entertaining." --Refinery29
"One of the most successful podcasts in history." --TheWashingtonPost.com
About the Author
Known for her biting wit and musical prowess, Karen Kilgariff has been a staple in the comedy world for decades. As a performer, she has appeared on Mr. Show, The Book Group, and Conan. She then transitioned to scripted television, writing for shows like Other Space, Portlandia, and Baskets. Her musical comedy album Live at the Bootleg was included in Vulture's Best Standup Specials and Albums of 2014.
Georgia Hardstark has enjoyed a successful career as a food writer and Cooking Channel on-camera personality, which began with the invention of the farcical cocktail, The McNuggetini. She went on to co-host a travel/adventure/party show called Tripping Out with Alie & Georgia, and a regular gig on Cooking Channels #1 show, Unique Sweets. She capped that off as a repeat guest narrator on Comedy Centrals hit show Drunk History.

***I have now purchased six copies - five hard and the audio - because when you find something you love, it's best to share it. And the audio is a SUPER treat.
So, what went wrong with this one:
1. The book is written by two writers. This in itself is not a bad thing, but in all the chapters it started as a conversation and parts of each chapter were narrated by Karen while other parts were narrated by Georgia.
This was very confusing and made me lose track of who was saying what.
The writing felt disjointed as if there were several books in this one.
2. The amount of bad language used was staggering. The F bomb was dropped almost in each sentence.
Mainly, as in "F*** politeness". So, maybe not a bad message here, but could have and should have been delivered in a more literary way. It is a book and not a fish market after all.
3. Some of the personal anecdotes told were irrelevant to the subject matter. Why would i be interested to know that one of the co writers (couldn't be bothered to remember which one) touched a P**** and did Meth at 13?
4. Not enough emphasis was given on the subject at hand- too much uninteresting personal anecdotes instead of true crime stories, and discussion of meaningful cultural and societal issues.
Felt immensely disappointed, and hence a one star review. My first.
