MARCH 2018 – BEING FUNNY IS A SURVIVAL SKILL. MARTI MACGIBBON’S INCREDIBLE MEMOIR FIERCE, FUNNY, AND FEMALE IS NOT ONLY A SURVIVOR’S TALE BUT AN INSPIRATIONAL STORY OF OVERCOMING THE UNTHINKABLE, AGAIN AND AGAIN.
Through drug abuse and eating disorders, through sexual trauma and the murky waters of sobriety, MacGibbon relates how she found a way to smile again. An inspirational speaker and mental health professional, she has clearly made peace with her personal story.
Fierce, Funny, and Female has an accessible, friendly tone that sometimes stands in sharp contrast to the extremely dark, tragic subject material. These memories have clearly been shared more than once, and the chapters read like well-worn territory. This is MacGibbon’s story, and she’s sticking to it.
