Sprinkle Glitter on My Grave

(2016)
A non fiction book by

 
 
The star of Bravo's breakout scripted comedy Odd Mom Out shares her razor-sharp wit and backhanded wisdom in a deeply observed and outrageously funny collection of musings, lists, essays, and outrages.

From her unique lingo (things don't simply frighten her, they M. Night Shyamalan her out) to her gimlet-eyed view of narrow-mindedness to her morbid but curiously life-affirming parenting style, Jill Kargman is nothing if not original. In this hilarious new book, the sharp-elbowed mother of three turns her unconventional lens on life and death and everything in between, including:

  • The politically correct peer pressure she felt from the new moms in her hood, the women who provided the grist for the mill of her hit television show
  • The evolution of her aesthetic from Miami Vice vibrant (a very brief flirtation) to Wednesday Addams meets rocker chic
  • Her deep-seated New Yorker's discomfort with moving vehicles that aren't taxis and subways (aka "suburban panic disorder")
  • The family obsession with reading obituaries for their medical revelations and real estate news value
  • The reasons why, in a land of tan-orexic baby-oil beach bakers, she chooses to honor the valor of her ghostly pallor


From a hellish visit to the Happiest Place on Earth to her unusual wedding night with Russell Crowe to her adrenaline-pumping gay pride parade experience, Sprinkle Glitter on My Grave is as wonderfully indecent and entertaining as a spring break road trip with your best friend. Assuming your best friend is the kind of gal who still wears a motorcycle jacket to pick up the kids at school.
