About this book
At age sisteen Margaret dropped out of school and began touring as a standup comedian. By twenty-three she was the star of her own sitcom, All-American Girl, the groundbreaking show featuring television's first Asian American family. But the road to fame wasn't smooth - and when the sitcom crashed and burned, so did Margaret.
Without ever losing her trademark humor, Margaret tells her astonishing tale of dieting her way into the hospital, drinking her way into oblivion, then rising from the ashes in her smash-hit one-woman show and record-breaking concert film.
As one of the country's most visible Asian Americans, she has a unique perspective on identity and acceptance. As one of the country's funniest and most quoted personalities, she takes no prisoners. And as a warm and wise woman who has seen the highs and lows of life, she has words of encouragement for anyone who has ever felt like an outsider.
With I'm the One That I Want, Margaret Cho has written a book every bit as hilarious, shocking, and insightful as she is.
