Publisher's Summary

“Equal parts pee-your-pants hilarity and break your heart poignancy—like the perfect brunch date you never want to end!"—America Ferrera, Emmy award-winning actress in Ugly Betty

From the New York Times bestselling author of I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter, an utterly original memoir-in-essays that is as deeply moving as it is hilarious

Growing up as the daughter of Mexican immigrants in Chicago in the nineties, Erika Sánchez was a self-described pariah, misfit, and disappointment—a foul-mouthed, melancholic rabble-rouser who painted her nails black but also loved comedy, often laughing so hard with her friends that she had to leave her school classroom. Twenty-five years later, she’s now an award-winning novelist, poet, and essayist, but she’s still got an irrepressible laugh, an acerbic wit, and singular powers of perception about the world around her.

In these essays, Sánchez writes about everything from sex to white feminism to debilitating depression, revealing an interior life rich with ideas, self-awareness, and perception. Raunchy, insightful, unapologetic, and brutally honest, Crying in the Bathroom is Sánchez at her best—a book that will make you feel that post-confessional high that comes from talking for hours with your best friend.

Best book ever !

I absolutely loved this book. Coming from a Mexican family I could relate and see myself in so many of her stories . All of her insecurities, thoughts reminded me of things I felt and thought about whole growing up . I definitely recommend this book.

Every Female and Latina needs to read

Loved it, I related so much to what Erika shared. She definitely bared it all and left nothing unwritten. I admire her for baring parts of her that many don’t. This book would be perfect for anyone who wanted to get an insight on someone who is struggling with their mental health. Erika I feel like I know you, I am sending you love and positive energy.

EXCEPTIONAL

Thank you for sharing such deep memories, culturally we are not used to speaking about the cultural shock it is growing up in an immigrant household. it is refreshing to hear the shared experiences and understand how we can change the narrative for our future generations.

Full of stereotypes

I couldn't enjoy her stories. Always complaining and quite depressing. I appreciate that the author was the narrator.

Audible

Liked the references to the Mexican culture. Dislike the voice and pronunciation of the audible reader…too many mispronunciations and very monotone.
