Your First Look at the Cover of Tig Notaro’s Memoir, I’m Just a Person

By

Tig Notaro's upcoming memoir I'm Just a Person, published by Ecco, will detail the very bad year when she was hospitalized for an intestinal disease called C. diff, lost her mother to an unexpected accident, went through a breakup, and was diagnosed with bilateral breast cancer — all in the matter of four months. A few days after her cancer diagnosis, Notaro did one of the most important stand-up sets in modern comedy, at the Largo, when she opened, "Good evening. Hello. I have cancer." That tumultuous year has inspired a wellspring of creative work from Notaro, who joined Vulture for a conversation last year at the Vulture Festival to talk about her tour and HBO special, Boyish Girl Interrupted, her Showtime documentary, Knock Knock, It's Tig Notaro, and a short film, "Clown Service." That didn't even include her upcoming Amazon show, One Mississippi. I'm Just a Person is available for preorder now and will be available for purchase June 14.
