How Y’all Doing?: Misadventures and Mischief from a Life Well Lived by Leslie Jordan

When Leslie Jordan learned he had “gone viral,” he had no idea what that meant or how much his life was about to change. Entertaining millions with his uproarious Instagram videos, he has become beloved around the globe and in this lively and intimate essay collection, Leslie is doing what Leslie does best: telling stories the whole world wants to hear.

Whether he’s writing about his brush with a biker gang in a West Hollywood Starbucks, or an unexpected phone call from the late Debbie Reynolds, Leslie infuses each story with his trademark Southern wit and an emotional resonance sure to touch the heart of every reader.

Thoughts
I’ve been a fan of Leslie Jordan since I saw him on The Cool Kids. (I’m sad the show was cancelled, it was very funny and had a great cast). His book is full of great stories about him from his childhood up. He has had a very interesting life so far, full of good and not so good times. I enjoyed everything he shared from begginning to end.

Whether you’re a fan of Leslie or not, I think you would enjoy this book.

I put the hardcover on hold at my library and then decided to also get the audio. I decided to only listen to the book because hearing his words in his own voice added another dimension to the story.

I highly recommend you listen to this one.

  1. I watched The Cool Kids and agree it was funny and had a good cast. I bet his story is interesting and will add the audio to my list. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I’ve never heard of Cool Kids but I like the description of this book.

  3. I never heard of Cool Kids either – sorry

  4. A good memoir is so much fun and if it’s funny, even better. Glad this one worked so well for you!

  5. I’ve seen this on my library’s audio site and have been wondering about it. I haven’t really watched any show that Leslie Jordan has been in but I’ve really enjoyed every interview I’ve seen with him so I’ll have to give this a try.
