Описание: Born the child of a homo and a hypochondriac (Okay, okay. Her dad s not really a homosexual. He just acts like it. Her mom, however, really is a hypochondriac), Sara Barron never stood a chance of being normal. At age eleven, she starts writing porn ( He humped me wildly with his wiener ). At twelve, she gets mistaken for a trannie. The pre-op sort, no less. By seventeen, she's featured on the Jerry Springer Show. And that s all before she hits New York.
"People Are Unappealing" tells the strange, funny, and sometimes filthy stories of Sara Barron s twisted suburban upbringing and deranged attempt at taking the Big Apple by storm first as an actor (then a waiter), then a dancer (then a waiter), then a comic (then a waiter). It s there that she meets the ex-boyfriend turned street clown. The silk pajama-clad poet. The OCD Xanax addict who refuses to have sex wearing any fewer than three condoms.
Barron has a knack for attracting the unattractive. "People Are Unappealing" is her wickedly funny look at the dark side of humanity."
