Let's Pretend This Never Happened
A Mostly True Memoir
By Jenny Lawson
Narrated by Jenny Lawson / 8 hours 40 minutes
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.
“The Bloggess writes stuff that actually is laugh-out-loud [funny], but you know that really you shouldn’t be laughing and probably you’ll go to hell for laughing, so maybe you shouldn’t read it. That would be safer and wiser.”Neil Gaiman
“Jenny Lawson’s writing is nothing less than revolutionary . . . I say this without a hint of exaggeration: She may be one of the most progressive women’s voices of our time.”Karen Walrond, author of The Beauty of Different
