"A frank and funny-because-it's-true memoir from New York Times bestselling author Michael Ian Black, about confronting his genetic legacy as he hits his 40s--the alt-comedy answer to Brad Garrett's WHEN THE BALLS DROP"--

Simon and Schuster
New York Times bestselling author and stand-up comedian Michael Ian Black (author of A Child’s First Book of Trump) delivers a “memorable and funny” (Kirkus Reviews) memoir about confronting his genetic legacy as he hits his forties.

Whether it’s family history, religion, aging, or his parents, Michael Ian Black always has something to say in the dry, irreverent voice that has captured a fan base of millions. When a medical diagnosis forces him to realize he’s not getting any younger, he reexamines his life as a middle-aged guy—of course, in the deadpan wit and self-deprecating vignettes that have become trademarks of his humor.

The alt-comedy take on getting older, Navel Gazing is a funny-because-it’s-true memoir about looking around when you’re forty and realizing that life is about more than receding hairlines and proving one’s manliness on Twitter—it’s about laughing at yourself.

This is a funny memoir from Michael’s life. He has a self-deprecating sense of humor that will make you feel ok about laughing at him.

Funny but sensitive riff on the author's aging and his physical self (yes, he's right, toes can be really gross) and coming to terms with his mother's aging. A really relatable book.
