Shrill meets Everything Below the Waist in this raw, darkly humorous, and hopeful memoir, Lara Parker, the Deputy Director for BuzzFeed, shares her day-to-day challenges of living, working, and loving with chronic pain caused by endometriosis with unflinching honesty.
Lara Parker is a writer and Deputy Editorial Director at Buzzfeed. She's also been interviewed or appeared in Cosmopolitan, Cosmopolitan Australia, Forbes, and Glamour. She began writing publicly on her blog, Outside the Comfort Zone, in college around the time of her diagnosis with endometriosis and hasn't stopped writing about her vagina since.
"Lara is brilliant, honest, and in pain. She's spent the
majority of her life writing about Vagina Problems that are a
must-read for honestly anyone who has chronic pain of any kind--or
anyone who loves someone who does." --Kelsey Darragh, YouTuber,
comedian, and host of the podcast "Confidently Insecure" "When Lara
talks about taboo subjects like sex with chronic pain, I just want
to hear more because her voice is so authentic and fresh." --Ariana
Madix, cast member of Vanderpump Rules
"I don't find many people inspiring. I do find Lara Parker inspiring though. Read her f**king book. Because she's smart, her voice is necessary, and because I said so." --Ira Madison III, writer and host of the podcast "Keep It"
