“Really funny.”—Reese Witherspoon
“Even when I was funny, I wasn’t this funny.”—Augusten Burroughs, author of Running with Scissors and This Is How
“Lawson’s self-deprecating humor is not only gaspingly funny and wonderfully inappropriate; it allows her to speak…in a real and raw way.”—O, The Oprah Magazine
“Fucked up in the best possible way. Adorably offensive.”—Jesus*
“Jenny Lawson is hilarious, snarky, witty, totally inappropriate, and ‘Like Mother Teresa, Only Better.’”—Marie Claire
“[Lawson] writes with a rambling irreverence that makes you wish she were your best friend.”—Entertainment Weekly
“The funniest memoir ever about a talking squirrel, anxiety disorder, couch etiquette, and more. Believe us, Lawson is hilarious.” —Ladies’ Home Journal
“GET READY. Jenny has such a disturbing, ill-mannered, rich sense of humor you will wonder, ‘Am I the sick one for laughing?’ Everyone I gave the book to confirmed: We must all be sick, because this book IS HYSTERICAL...and yet it was also strangely touching at times. It’s one of my favorite books in the past five years.”—Kathryn Stockett, # 1 New York Times bestselling author of The Help
“Funny, raunchy, and unexpectedly uplifting…Let’s Pretend will leave you hoping that Lawson’s next book happens and soon.”—People
“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
*Jesus is the author’s hairdresser. You can tell him apart from that other Jesus because they pronounce their names differently.
About the Author
Known for her sardonic wit and her hysterically skewed outlook on life, Jenny Lawson has made millions of people question their own sanity, as they found themselves admitting that they, too, often wondered why Jesus wasn’t classified as a zombie, or laughed to the point of bladder failure when she accidentally forgot that she mailed herself a cobra. Lawson’s blog (TheBloggess.com) is award-winning and extremely popular, and she is considered one of the funniest writers of our generation by at least three or four people.See all Product description

You cannot read this without laughing out loud.
Any time I hear someone laughing uncontrollably in a bookstore, on a plane or a bus - I assume they must be reading this or thinking about when they did.
