White Girl Problems has always manged to be funny and droll, in 140 characters no less, but can the team behind the fictional Babe Walker manage to pen a biography of their thin, self-obsessed and completely neurotic heroine that would be just as hysterical? The answer, luckily, is yes.
White Girl Problems is an always amusing and laugh out loud funny look at the life of Walker, a girl who holds an intervention to exact revenge on an ex (inviting his grandmother AND priest), loses her virginity to her gay best friend and goes behind her father’s back to undergo what she deems a very necessary labiaplasty.
Along the way Babe manages to hold down jobs, albeit briefly, ranging from “lawyer” and actress to children’s clothing designer. The latter of which, while meant as a joke, would no doubt make for a very good line.
Fans of the White Girl Problems Twitter will love the book, but so too will those of us sick of the twee and sensitive biographies that are a dime a dozen these days. Babe is more like us than many of us would likely want to admit. And sure, Babe did not go from homeless to Harvard, but haven’t we all wanted to pop a Xanax and check out every once in a week?
