    You know those people who have the ability to make everyone feel like they re their best friend Even if you just see them for a second you leave feeling happier and lighter Elephants in my Room feels like the book version of that person, if that makes sense I think it s because there s no hint of phoniness Every story, whether it s about telemarketing or a historic fart, feels so vulnerable and genui

    This is a memoir by a young woman who has somehow packed a dozen lifetimes into her so far brief years It s a work of some kind of twisted genius, skipping back and forth through the years to land, finally on the heart of things Why we are who we are Elephants begins like a shot out from an elephant gun, detailing a childhood that begins the jungles of Brazil with Nicholl s family of admittedly brilliant assh

    Elephants in My Room is a refreshing, light read that sneaks up on you as a testament to Love, Truth and Family Yes, Christie Nicholls is funny a stand up comedian, actor and writer with a PhD in Performance Studies But what I especially liked is that her humor, combined with her compassion and strength, provides an undertow when you least expect it When she is boisterously, comically on a roll and I m thinking, Go girl she then pivots, and shows me som
