Let's Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir

Let's Pretend This Never Happened details Jenny Lawson's unusual and hilarious life, beginning with her childhood in rural Texas.  Highlights include gifts of dead animals from her taxidermist father, cow insemination, tales of torture and mockery from a career in HR, terrible wedding dresses, and a chapter written entirely in post-it notes to her husband.

“When I was in junior high I read a lot of Danielle Steele. So I always assumed that the day I got engaged I'd be naked, covered in rose petals, and sleeping with the brother of the man who'd kidnapped me.”

Jenny Lawson is the author of Let's Pretend This Never Happened, Furiously Happy, and the website The Blogess.  She has also written for several publications, including the Houston Chronicle and SexIs Magazine.
