Samantha Bee’s inexplicable neuroses, social misfires, and weird fears could fill a book, so they did. I Know I Am, But What Are You? is an unflinchingly candid cross-section of a Canadian coming-of-age crisscrossed with disturbingly affectionate fetishes for religious iconography, teenage crime sprees, and unlicensed Sailor Moon memorabilia. Destined to be either a comedian or the owner of a condemned pet store, we as a people can breathe a collective sigh of relief that Samantha Bee grew up to become America’s Canadian Sweetheart on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Her collection of autobiographical essays illustrates in twelve easy steps how a dysfunctional childhood can be maneuvered into a dysfunctional adulthood and unforeseen glory.
