8 books of Jenny Lawson

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, 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.

In Furiously Happy, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jenny Lawson explores her lifelong battle with mental illness. A hysterical, ridiculous book about crippling depression and anxiety? That sounds like a terribleidea. But terrible ideas are what Jenny does best.­As Jenny says: "Some people might think that being 'furiously happy' is just an excuse to be stupid and irresponsible and invite a herd of kangaroos over to your house without telling your husband first because you suspect he would say no since he's never particularly liked kangaroos. And that would be ridiculous because no one would invite a herd of kangaroos into their house. Two is the limit. I speak from personal experience. My husband says that none is the new limit. I say he should have been clearer about that before I rented all those kangaroos.
"Most of my favorite people are dangerously fucked-­up but you'd never guess because we've learned...

For fans of Tina Fey and David Sedaris—Internet star Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, makes her literary debut. Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives—the ones we’d like to pretend never happened—are in fact the ones that define us. In Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-­suffering husband, Victor. Chapters include: “Stanley the Magical, Talking Squirrel”; “A Series of Angry Post-­It Notes to My Husband”; “My Vagina Is Fine. Thanks for Asking”; “And Then I Snuck a Dead Cuban Alligator on an Airplane.­” Pictures with captions (no one would believe these things without proof) accompany the text.

Ria das suas desgraças

Não existe vida perfeita e não há quem não passe por momentos difíceis. Mas existe uma boa maneira de enfrentar complicações: não se leve tão a sério. Essa, pelo menos, é a fórmula de Jenny Lawson.

Neste livro absolutamente engraçado e divertido, a autora ? famosa blogueira norte-­americana, com milhares de seguidores na internet ? narra sua hilariante e pouco provável vida. Com ela, vamos ao Texas, sua terra natal, para conhecer como cresceu a filha de um taxidermista obsessivo que a fez viver experiências bizarras, sua adolescência conturbada e o casamento tortuoso de 15 anos com Victor, que lhe deu uma linda filha, com a qual vários gatos disputam a atenção.

Tudo em seu cotidiano parece muito estranho e, como ela diz, ?­difícil de acreditar? (e por isso ela coloca fotos, para provar que é tudo, bem, verdade?­), mas também superengraçado. Sua escrita é ligeira, descontraída e ?­blogueira? (no bom sentido), com alto teor de sarcasmo e ironia, muito . . .
