Synopsis

The instant New York Times bestseller from the author of Furiously Happy and Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. Now with a new bonus chapter.

Broken is the party of the year . . . I loved it’ - Sarah Knight, bestselling author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k

As her fans already know, Jenny Lawson suffers from depression. In Broken, Jenny humanizes what we all face in an all-too-real way, reassuring us that we’re not alone and making us laugh while doing it. Of course, Jenny’s long-suffering husband Victor, the Ricky to Jenny’s Lucille Ball, is along for the ride.

Hilarious, heart-warming and honest, Broken is about living, surviving, and thriving. A beacon of hope and a wellspring of laughter when we all need it most.

A New York Times, Washington Post and LA Times bestseller.

Jenny Lawson is extremely funny because she is extremely honest. Lawson's relentless pursuit of authenticity is the source of the darkly hilarious prose found within this memoir of depression; a memoir that is unexpectedly inspiring and comforting but not unexpectedly endearing. Because to read Jenny Lawson is to love Jenny Lawson

A new book from Jenny Lawson is always cause for celebration, and Broken is the party of the year. Even better: it’s a party that socially-anxious introverts can enjoy from the solitary comfort of their own couches, beds, cars, or closet floors buried under a pile of blankets and/or cats. I loved it. And if you like laughing and weirdness and honesty and—most of all—feeling seen, you will love it too

I consider Jenny Lawson to be a therapist colleague—not because she’s a fellow clinician, but because in courageously sharing the truth of her story, she makes us feel instantly seen and fully understood in all of our alternately painful and hilarious humanity
