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

Much as I dislike leaving a negative review, I think there needs to be another perspective since there are so many positive reviews for this book. I just didn’t care for the style of writing and the humor wasn’t funny to me. I made it 90 pages into the story and just had to stop. I think this is one of those books that just doesn’t suit everyone, but obviously many people loved it!

Lots of laughs!

This book truly made me laugh out loud several times. I love the writer’s casual but witty writing style, and the way she goes off on hilarious tangents reminds me of several of my own conversations with friends. Sometimes we need to just read something that makes us smile, and this book doesn’t disappoint.
