Jenny Lawson, The Bloggess, is an award-winning humor writer known for her great candor in sharing her struggle with depression and mental illness. Her first book, LET'S PRETEND THIS NEVER HAPPENED, was a #1 New York Times bestseller.
In FURIOUSLY HAPPY, Jenny Lawson examines her own experience with severe depression and a host of other conditions, and explains how it has led her to live life to the fullest. There are so many people out there struggling with depression and mental illness, either themselves or someone in their family --- and in this book they will find a member of their tribe offering up an uplifting message (via a taxidermied roadkill raccoon).
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.
