Comedy writer Kristin Newman has worked in Hollywood for almost twenty years. She has written for “That ’70s Show,” “Chuck,” “How I Met Your Mother,” and ABC’s “The Neighbors”—or in other words, so many of our favorite sitcoms. Her new memoir, WHAT I WAS DOING WHILE YOU WERE BREEDING, is her hilarious account of her freewheeling, gallivanting twenties and thirties as she worked ample travel time into the downtime between writing seasons—and worked ample socializing and romance into those travels—while her friends at home were settling down with husbands and children. Her smart, sexy and funny reflections of her ultimately poignant journey are sure to appeal to fans of Mindy Kaling and Chelsea Handler.
We’re excited to have a large quantity of What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding ARCs to share with you!
