She’s designed catalogs for J.Crew, performed stand-up comedy, even worked as Henri Bendel’s
only female security guard. Pam Gaslow has had an eventful life -- including once being threatened by her family with disownment over her Depressed Hot Girl blog -- and it’s about to get even more so with her first-personal confessional “Don’t Bring Your Vibrator to Rehab.” It’s a hilarious chronicle of her journey toward sobriety from a toxic marijuana addiction, told with candor, honesty, absurdism, and the trademark wit that has brought her to comedy club stages across the country. The New York-born writer is also a contributor to The Huffington Post, The Good Men Project, The Times of Israel, and Newsbreak. Gaslow, who also works as a mixed-media artist, once owned and designed children’s clothing lines under the brands Pamela Jo (for girls) and Handsome Jack (for boys). Now based in Miami, she is sober and enjoys visiting petting zoos on weekends. For more salacious details and quirky randomness follow her on Instagram @pamgaslow.
Advance Praise for Don't Bring Your Vibrator to Rehab
There’s no recovery from addiction without a fearless self-inventory. Pam Gaslow’s courage in confronting herself is delivered with a bawdy, comic punch. Rehab has rarely been this funny or frank. And yet buried inside her memoir is an important warning: today’s pot is no laughing matter. It’s a powerful, addictive drug with the potential to destroy lives.
