Publisher Description

A hilarious and not-so-serious memoir about how funny girl, Summer Land, raised her ovaries in middle class America before falling in love and moving to Australia with her coal-mining husband. Summerlandish is all the hard-won, scar-leaving, tattoo-regretting, butthole-tearing lessons Summer has learned over the years – “summer-ised” here in all their glamorously gory detail, so you don’t have to bother with learning them yourselves. And, surprisingly, she seems to know quite a bit about love, life and awkward moments involving too much caffeine and/or lack of restraint.

Born in West Virginia and raised in Florida, Summer Land graduated magna cum laude from Emerson College in Boston in 2008 where she studied Marketing. After embarking on a Working Holiday in Australia and spending two ski seasons in Park City, Utah, Summer moved to Australia in 2010 where she settled down in Mudgee, NSW and began writing.

Inspired by Sloane Crosley, Chelsea Handler and David Sedaris, Summer first started blogging, but quickly learned she had a book inside of her. Summerlandish: Do As I Say, Not As I Did, was published in 2013, which prompted numerous writers’ and readers’ festival appearances across Australia. Her writing work has also been featured in Elle Australia, Cosmopolitan Australian, Mamamia and Women’s Health. Today, Land is a contributor to The Tot and is working on a novel. I Now Pronounce You Husband and Expat is her second book.

Went through this book way too fast! Found myself feeling like I couldn't wait to read the next outlandish story Summer had to tell! She's like the girl you wanted to be friends with, always doing crazy things, having fun, and definitly making some wild memories!
