Book Review

Cameron Esposito couldn’t have realized her diary Save Yourself would turn out amidst a worldwide pandemic. However, her suitably named book incorporates perceptions that vibe shockingly relevant to this disrupting time. ‘People are terrified and need to be saved,’ she composes. ‘We need to know why we are here, what we should do, and how to ensure ourselves.’

Esposito is a writer, comic, and actor. At the point when she named her book, she had as top priority eccentric children, attempting to get themselves — as she once did experience childhood in an exacting Catholic family unit. As a grown-up, Esposito is as yet looking for answers; however, she says she discovers significance in association — to herself and other people. She expresses, ‘Possibly that association is God, and we are our own deliverers, intended to save ourselves.’

This ‘amusing and fair’ top-of-the-line memoir from a rising parody star handles issues of sex, sexuality, woman’s rights, and the Catholic youth that arranged her for a vocation as a candid lesbian humorist (Abby Wambach).

Cameron Esposito needed to be a priest and wound up a professional comedian. Presently she might want to tell the entire strange as damnation story. Her story. Not the sidebar to a straight individual’s resurrection, she doesn’t give a makeover or plan a wedding or get a couple back together. This is certainly not an eccentric misfortune.

She doesn’t decease toward the finish of this book, having at long last chosen to kiss the young lady. It’s the attractive, legit, rough, and victorious dyke’s story her more youthful, wasn’t-permitted to-watch-Ellen self-expected to peruse. Since there was quite a while when she figured she wouldn’t make it. Not as a comic, but rather as a human.

SAVE YOURSELF is brimming with entertaining and wise memories about everything from coming out (at a Catholic school where the sexual direction wasn’t in the nondiscrimination strategy) to how joining the bazaar can help you become a superior comic (such a lot of bareness) to tolerating yourself for whom you are-regardless of whether you’re, say, a bowl cut-donning, bespectacled, sex nonconforming kid with an eye fix (which Cameron was).

Loaded with heart, humor, and cringeworthily stories any individual who has experienced pubescence, fallen head over heels in love, begun a vocation, or had period sex in Rome can identify with, Cameron’s diary is for that hesitant, fenced-in child within each one of us and the brave stand-up longing to break free.

Critic’s Views


A laugh uncontrollably assortment of cringeworthily stories covering everything from turning out in your 20s-at a Catholic women’s school, in any case, to tolerating yourself for who genuinely are-regardless of whether you’re ‘a bowl cut-donning, bespectacled, sex nonconforming youngster with an eye fix.


Searching for an all the more forcefully unruly close-to-the-home record of accommodating confidence with sexuality? Acclaimed comic Cameron Esposito is your source. Save Yourself outlines the great, the awful, and the chaotic of Esposito’s own excursion, from joining the carnival to having period sex in Rome.


In [Save Yourself], Esposito investigates her coming out of the cycle and composes the strange story about growing up she wishes she heard as a youngster. From being an off-kilter tween with an eyepatch to stressing, God reviled her with ringworm after her first gay kiss; this journal will make you chuckle, cry, and feel a tad gayer.
