I may be the only grown man in America who owns Swerve: Reckless Observations of a Postmodern Girl, comedian and actress Aisha Tyler’s 2005 collection of essays. But I’m not ashamed. Talent is talent and funny is funny and learning about dating from a gal’s perspective is always a worthy use of your time.
And it’s all the more reason I’m excited that Tyler is in the midst of writing her second book of essays, this time titled Self-Inflicted Wounds: How I Learned to Embrace the Epic Fail. To be released July 2 (you can pre-order it now), the tome “will primarily focus upon the theme of personal advancement despite failure and promises to deliver ‘poignant life lessons,’ while simultaneously inducing laughter,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Until then, however, there’s (thankfully) no shortage of Tyler. You can see her every day on The Talk on CBS, listen to her on her super podcast Girl on Guy and, come Jan. 17 at 10 pm ET, you’ll be able to catch her each week as Lana Kane on the fourth season of FX’s hit show Archer! Oh, and she’s also on tour.
