Overview

"Get off your phone and read Jess Kimball Leslie's funny book!"
---Andy Cohen, host of Bravo's Watch What Happens Live

I LOVE MY COMPUTER BECAUSE MY FRIENDS LIVE IN IT is a hilarious memoir of growing up in the early days of the Internet and celebrating technology's role in our lives.

Coming of age in suburban Connecticut in the late '80s and early '90s, Jess Kimball Leslie looked to the nascent Internet to find the tribes she couldn't find IRL: fellow Bette Midler fans; women who seemed impossibly sure of their sexuality; interns trudging through similarly soul-crushing media jobs. Through effortlessly comedic storytelling and looks at tech through the ages (with photos!), Jess takes you on a journey through the hilarious times that technology and the Internet changed her life.

From accounts of the lawless chat rooms of early AOL to the perpetual high school reunions that are modern-day Facebook and Instagram, Jess's essays paint a clear picture: That each of us has a much more twisted, meaningful, emotional relationship with the online world than we realize or let on.
