Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of Furiously Happy...

When Jenny Lawson was little, all she ever wanted was to fit in. That dream was cut short by her fantastically unbalanced father and a morbidly eccentric childhood. It did, however, open up an opportunity for Lawson to find the humor in the strange shame-spiral that is her life, and we are all the better for it.

In the irreverent Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson’s long-suffering husband and sweet daughter help her uncover the surprising discovery that the most terribly human moments—the ones we want to pretend never happened—are the very same moments that make us the people we are today. For every intellectual misfit who thought they were the only ones to think the things that Lawson dares to say out loud, this is a poignant and hysterical look at the dark, disturbing, yet wonderful moments of our lives.

Includes a new chapter!

    Having decided that every home needs a Rory (furiously happy) I wanted to give book one a try and I have to say, I wasn't disappointed. Jenny touches heartstrings without being arrested for innapropriate conduct. Anyone (such as me) who has struggled with any form of mental illnesses will relate beyond their wildest dreams! Buy this book! For everyone!

    I’ve read this book so many times. It’s brilliant. Everytime I read it, it brings me to tears, i am laughing so hard. I very highly recommend this book to everyone I meet, and I am furiously happy that she has written another. Counting down the days.

    From Annoyed Political Junkie
    Seriously Jenny is an amazing writer. I laughed so hard I cried and attempted to read the story aloud to my husband only to fall into fits of giggles. Her life is real and messy and wonderful. She gives a voice to the reality of mental illness, true love and family. My only disappointment? I read it in 2 days...I wish it had been longer!
  • Too much rambling

  • Not worth the read

    Rambles on way too much. Some funny parts but a far cry from a funny book. Not worth the money.
  • Great read!

    Pretty hilarious book! Jenny Lawson has the great ability to see her life experiences in a positive and funny way, whether they had been horrifying or not. Very entertaining :)
