Viral sensation and Emmy Award-winner Leslie Jordan regales fans with entertaining stories about the odd, funny, and unforgettable events in his life in this unmissable essay collection that echoes his droll, irreverent voice.

When actor Leslie Jordan learned he had “gone viral,” he had no idea what that meant or how much his life was about to change. On Instagram, his uproarious videos have entertained millions and have made him a global celebrity. Now, he brings his bon vivance to the page with this collection of intimate and sassy essays.

Bursting with color and life, dripping with his puckish Southern charm, How Y’all Doing? is Leslie doing what Leslie does best: telling stories that make us laugh and lift our spirits even in the darkest days. Whether he’s writing about his brush with a group of ruffians in a West Hollywood Starbucks, or an unexpected phone call from legendary Hollywood start Debbie Reynolds, Leslie infuses each story with his fresh and saucy humor and pure heart.

How Y’all Doing? is an authentic, warm, and joyful portrait of an American Sweetheart— a Southern Baptist celebutante, first-rate raconteur, and keen observer of the odd side of life whose quirky wit rivals the likes of Amy Sedaris, Jenny Lawson, David Rakoff, and Sarah Vowell.

Such a joyful distraction from the day to day news. Leslie tells stories like many of our Southern friends do. He has a coy, and crafty innocence in his stories. All come across as spilling out from the heart.

Such a great book. The stories were funny and sweet. And the cadence of his voice was wonderful. I would love to hear so many more books both written and narrated by him.

Oh my gosh...I did not want this book to end and have to say goodbye to my new best friend!! I really cannot imagine experiencing this delightful book any other way but through Leslie Jordan’s wonderfully expressive narration!! I have always enjoyed Mr Jordan on TV. His character on “Designing Women” in particular, but to get to know him through his writings was truly a joy! Thanks so much Leslie!!
