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

Let's Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir - Jenny Lawson This is the memoir I've been waiting for, the memoir to shame all other memoirs not containing frequent mentions of taxidermy and female anatomy.

This is without a doubt the most bizarre, hilarious, and memorable book I've ever read. I really appreciated Lawson's courage in sharing her I-can't-believe-this-is-real childhood stories, her stories of loss and trauma, and her experiences with crippling anxiety. There was not a single moment that I couldn't relate to Lawson in some way or another, and I followed her un-chronological, stream-of-consciousness writing without batting an eye, like they were my own crazy thoughts. (Although I don't know what that says about me...)
