ME: August 10th "LET'S PRETEND THIS NEVER HAPPENED", BY THE BLOGGESS, JENNY LAWSON
Disclaimer: Due to Adult Language, this book is not recommended for children.
Jenny Lawson has been known to millions online and on Twitter as "The Bloggess". But when she decides to break into "print" media, her chosen subject matter is her more-than-a-little strange upbringing. With a father Lawson describes as completely crazy, and a mother who she later discovered was also crazy - just not as crazy as her father - Lawson says nobody has as insane a family as she does.
"Let's Pretend This Never Happened," is a darkly comic memoir full of incidents that - were they not so funny - might be considered sad.
However, Lawson is one of the least sad people with which I have ever spoken. She's upbeat and looks back on her bizarre upbringing with a twisted fondness that's hard to resist.
