Beth Lisick is the undisputed master of the small, strange personal story, but in this collection she transcends punchlines and gets real. Yokohama Threeway is a lot weirder and, we think, even awesomer than her earlier collections of funny anecdotes. Lisick has a knack for telling a story quickly and then getting out, just stopping, before drawing any fake-profound conclusions. Shitty jobs, the Bay Area’s influx of rich assholes, Stephen Elliot, the humiliations of childhood, an alcoholic coworker, the ex-boyfriend who wanted to teach her how to wash her ass properly – no one is spared in these subtle, perfectly rendered, hilarious and true snapshots of the artist’s life.
