Gary Gulman (The Great Depresh) is known as the the comedian’s comedian, acclaimed for his delight in language and his bracing honesty. But after two psych ward stints, he found himself back at his mother’s house—living in his childhood bedroom at age forty-six as he struggled to regain his mental health. He’s chronicled that journey (and oh, so much more) in Misfit, a brilliant, witty, poignant, laugh-until-your-face-hurts memoir of growing up awkward in the ’80s.
