Publisher Description

The #1 New York Times bestselling (mostly true) memoir from the hilarious author of Furiously Happy.

“Gaspingly funny and wonderfully inappropriate.”—O, The Oprah Magazine


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.

Let's Pretend This Never Happened

This book proves I am normal no matter what anyone says.

Nonstop gut-wrenching laughs

Jenny Lawson is divine! I'm sure she writes just like she speaks and that makes the book so much more enjoyable. I take comfort in the fact that she and her family are just as crazy as me and mine. I laughed through the entire book, but quite a few times I found myself laughing so hard I couldn't keep my eyes open. I read parts aloud to my husband who looked at me like I was nuts... Then I'd tell him, "Oh my God, they're just like us!" I can't wait for book two (I hope she tells us about this twin she ingested).

Had me in tears

I've never read (or even heard of) Jenny's blog before I read this book. Although it was a bit 'ramblely' at times that's essentially what made it so dang funny. I laughed to the point of crying several times, the turkey bit was my absolute favorite!!
