Publisher's Summary

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller

Audie Award Winner, Humor

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.

The Best Guncle ever <3

Loved the stories! Leslie had a perfect voice to tell them all. I could relate to so much of the Southern & religious upbringing. He may be gone from this earth but will most certainly not be forgotten!

Awesome Book Will Make You Laugh But Think Also

Hearing the book in his voice and words brings the book to life. You feel the authors pain, fun, joy and love for our world and it’s people. Being gay myself it struck so many cords and as such presents a positive image of being and growing up gay. Life is not miserable as a gay person it’s joyous, fun and rewarding. This is totally captured and delivered by Leslie. Awesome job and keep up the great work you do.

Delightful ranconteur!

I have always found him completely adorable and his personality really comes through in this book. It's touching, hilarious and so fascinating to have a peek into his life. Can't wait for more...would love to see him in person.

What more could you want?

Leslie Jordan could read a phone book and I would find it entertaining. For those of you who don’t remember phone books, well...
