This week I'm waiting on...
Let's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir) by Jenny Lawson
* Book will be released April 17, 2012
Check out the description from Goodreads:
"When Jenny Lawson was little, all she ever wanted was to fit in. That dream was cut short by her fantastically unbalanced father (a professional taxidermist who created dead-animal hand puppets) and a childhood of wearing winter shoes made out of used bread sacks. 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.
Lawson's long-suffering husband and sweet daughter are the perfect comedic foils to her absurdities, and help her to 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.
Let's Pretend This Never Happened is a poignantly disturbing, yet darkly hysterical tome for every intellectual misfit who thought they were the only ones to think the things that Lawson dares to say out loud. Like laughing at a funeral, this book is both irreverent and impossible to hold back once you get started."
I can't wait for this book. The Bloggess aka Jenny Lawson is freaking hilarious which can be seen here. I sometimes find myself actually laughing out loud at her blog so I imagine that the book will have me chuckling maniacally too. I've already pre-ordered the book and even made sure that my Supervisor ordered a copy for the library where I work.
