Product Details


I Told You So is true, terrifying, and coffee-out-yournose funny. I love Kate Clinton. Buy the book, or I’ll sic the NSA on your ass.—Rachel Maddow

“Kate Clinton makes our world bigger by sharing hers. With her laser-beam wit, she offers up a series of bittersweet, twisted, tart and tangy, honest, and from-the-heart essays. I enjoyed every minute of viewing the world through her eyes. All that and she is funny.”—Lewis Black, The Daily Show

“A hilarious, jam-packed, and fun-filled collection of thoughts from the mind of an American original.”—Lily Tomlin

“Clinton proves in these essays—which cover topics from the inherent lesbianism of Sex and the City to three-dimensional thesauri—that she still ranks among the sharpest, funniest working comedians.”—Ms.

“[Clinton] throws just as many ingredients into the pot—she riffs on Hillary Clinton and waterboarding, baptism and Provincetown—but comedic license and her own wicked sense of humor allow Clinton a kind of thematic ADD that fiction would not afford.”—Kathi Wolfe, Washington Blade
