I Want to Be Where the Normal People Are

I Want to Be Where the Normal People Are

A collection of hilarious personal essays, poems and even amusement park maps on the subjects of insecurity, fame, anxiety, and much more from the charming and wickedly funny creator of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
“It’s nice to know someone as talented as Rachel is also pretty weird. If you’re like me and love Rachel Bloom, this hilarious, personal book will make you love her even more.” – Mindy Kaling
“Rachel is one of the funniest, bravest people of our generation and this book blew me away.” – Amy Schumer
Rachel Bloom has felt abnormal and out of place her whole life. In this exploration of what she thinks makes her ‘different’, she’s come to realise that a lot of people also feel this way; even people who she otherwise thought were ‘normal’.
In a collection of laugh-out-loud funny essays, all told in the unique voice (sometimes singing voice) that made her a star, Rachel writes about everything from her love of Disney, OCD and depression, weirdness, and female friendships to the story of how she didn’t poop in the toilet until she was four years old. It’s a hilarious, smart, and infinitely relatable collection (except for the pooping thing).

Rachel is one of the funniest, bravest people of our generation and this book blew me away
Amy Schumer
Rachel Bloom looks at our 'normal' world through the point of view of a confused, hopeful alien with a huge heart and a raging, quirky creativity. I will never look at amusement park maps the same way
Patton Oswalt

Mindy Kaling
Painfully funny (and funnily painful)
B.J. Novak
There's something I love a lot that people don't acknowledge as a thing and it's heartbreaking comedy. This book is that. Read it. You will laugh while you're crying and cry while you're laughing. Treat yourself to the heartbreaking comedy that is the life of Rachel Bloom
Sarah Silverman
My podcast made Rachel Bloom cum and it'll make you cum too
