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.


I needed something uplifting after that last book and the huge tome I’m working my way through on my kindle - we lost a huge talent in a small package when Leslie died in Oct 2022. This book showcases his witty southern charm. 

It’s a series of stories narrated by Leslie about growing up, his unexpected success on Instagram and his acting career. While he mentions his addiction issues, recovery it’s not the focus, if you need to just feel good this is a good pick - I found myself smiling throughout it - his southern twang and vibrant personality shine through.
