Synopsis

Even when I was funny, I wasn't this funny'
Augusten Burroughs, author of Running With Scissors

Have you ever embarrassed yourself so badly you thought you'd never get over it?

Have you ever wished your family could be just like everyone else's?

Have you ever been followed to school by your father's herd of turkeys, mistaken a marriage proposal for an attempted murder or got your arm stuck inside a cow? OK, maybe that's just Jenny Lawson . . .

The bestselling memoir from one of America's most outlandishly hilarious writers.

In the media

[A] wondrous knack for bawdy storytelling. . . Lawson's self-deprecating humour is not only gaspingly funny and wonderfully inappropriate; it also allows her to speak about subjects like depression, anxiety and infertility in a real and raw way
O Magazine
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
Bawdy, irreverent, searingly honest, big and loud. . .she keeps her readers in stitches
