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.

Endlessly entertaining and consistently jaw-dropping

Frankly, it would be hard to grow up free of eccentricities if one's strongest memories of childhood involved a taxidermist father bringing home all manner of fierce creatures, alive and dead. . . The best and funniest parts of this memoir are the childhood reminiscences...but Lawson also wrings much amusement from the challenge of balancing her eccentricities with the demands of being grown up and having a family of her own
