"Get off your phone and read Jess Kimball Leslie's funny book!" ---Andy Cohen, host of Bravo's Watch What Happens Live I LOVE MY COMPUTER BECAUSE MY FRIENDS LIVE IN IT is a hilarious memoir of growing up in the early days of the Internet and celebrating technology's role in our lives. Coming of age in suburban Connecticut in the late '80s and early '90s, Jess Kimball Leslie "Get off your phone and read Jess Kimball Leslie's funny book!" ---Andy Cohen, host of Bravo's Watch What Happens Live I LOVE MY COMPUTER BECAUSE MY FRIENDS LIVE IN IT is a hilarious memoir of growing up in the early days of the Internet and celebrating technology's role in our lives. Coming of age in suburban Connecticut in the late '80s and early '90s, Jess Kimball Leslie looked to the nascent Internet to find the tribes she couldn't find IRL: fellow Bette Midler fans; women who seemed impossibly sure of their sexuality; interns trudging through similarly soul-crushing media jobs. Through effortlessly comedic storytelling and looks at tech through the ages (with photos!), Jess takes you on a journey through the hilarious times that technology and the Internet changed her life. From accounts of the lawless chat rooms of early AOL to the perpetual high school reunions that are modern-day Facebook and Instagram, Jess's essays paint a clear picture: That each of us has a much more twisted, meaningful, emotional relationship with the online world than we realize or let on.

    *Disclaimer, I am related to the author, but here is my honest opinion of the book: It's honest and funny, and offers a thoughtful look at the author's life through the lens of technology. My husband and I took turns reading it and one of us would break out laughing and then have to explain to the other what point we hit.

    It's funny and ironic that someone like myself who loathes most of technology picked up-and LOVED- this book immediately. A quick...and funny...look at technology and the part it played in the author's life growing up and into adulthood.
