Description
Growing up with a fantastically unbalanced father and a morbidly eccentric childhood—in which taxidermy ferrets in cancan dresses and the Last Supper constructed of stuffed Victorian kittens were not out of the ordinary—made it tough for Jenny Lawson to fit in with her classmates and peers. Fortunately, it also gave her plenty of material to create the wildly popular online humor blog, TheBloggess.com, as well as to write columns for the online Houston Chronicle and other sites and, last but not least, produce this hilarious memoir. Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-suffering husband Victor, in chapters like "Stanley the Magical, Talking Squirrel"; "The Psychopath On the Other Side of the Bathroom Door"; "My Vagina Is Fine. Thanks for Asking"; and the bonus chapter in this edition, "There's a Serious Lack of Prostitutes on This Tour."

"Take one part David Sedaris and two parts Chelsea Handler and you'll have some inkling of the cockeyed humor of Jenny Lawson.... [She] flaunts the sort of fearless comedic chops that will make you spurt Diet Coke through your nose."—Parade

"In this mordant memoir, Lawson ... makes hilarious hay out of her rural Texas upbringing, during which her taxidermist father thought nothing of bringing feral creatures into the house (on her future husband Victor's first visit to meet the family, dear old Dad tossed a baby bobcat into the unsuspecting lad's lap). Plagued by anxiety attacks, Lawson is loath to go out in public, and when she does, she inevitably makes a scene. At a Halloween party, she regales guests with a tale of being attacked by a serial killer (turns out it was just her corpulent cat). Lawson, whose award-winning website, TheBloggess.com, averages more than half-a-million page-views per month, delivers some mild moments among the mayhem. At a women's retreat replete with bonding and wine, she happily discovers that girls really aren't so bad."—Booklist
