If you haven’t heard of Hilary Winston and don’t yet follow her hilarious Twitter feed, don’t fret!

People don’t usually know who the writers of their favourite TV shows are, but Hilary was a writer for My Name is Earl and currently writes for Community, and you should definitely  get to know her. That’s exactly what this book allows you to do; in it, Hilary tells hilarious stories about her relationships with her two cats and her various romantic interests with a shameless self-awareness and wit.

For anyone who has ever had their heart broken and needed to know that others have similar experiences — here is your proof. Hilary reveals herself through her past relationships and manages to tell heartbreaking stories with a grain of salt and a sense of irony.
