Everything Is Perfect When You're a Liar Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kelly Oxford is . . .

A wunderkind producer of pirated stage productions for six-year-olds

Not the queen of the world

An underage schnitzel-house dishwasher

The kid who stood up to a bully and almost passed out from the resulting adrenaline rush

A born salesman

Capable of willing her eyesight to be 20/20

That girl who peed her pants in the gas station that one time

Totally an expert on strep throat

Incapable of making Leonardo DiCaprio her boyfriend

A writer

A certified therapy assistant who heals with Metallica mixtapes

"Not fat enough to be super snuggly." —Bea, age four

Not above using raspberry-studded sh*t to get out of a speeding ticket

"Bitingly funny. But everybody knows that." —Roger Ebert

Sad that David Copperfield doesn't own a falcon

A terrible liar

Review:

"With biting wit and always-appreciated humorous self-deprecation, Oxford's tweets have garnered a huge following." Time magazine

Review:

"Kelly Oxford is one of the funniest writers I have read in a long time." Jason Segel

Review:

"Kelly Oxford is a b*tch who got lucky and never paid her dues. She's just like me and I love her for it." Diablo Cody

Review:

"I'm fascinated by Kelly Oxford. She's a 21st century public diarist, her story told in shards, brief moments of wit and observation." Jonathan Ames

Review:

“Kelly Oxford has this unbelievable ability to tell stories in that way that makes you laugh without ever shoving jokes in your face. This book is basically an announcement that shes one of the best humor writers working today.” Justin Halpern, author of Sh*t My Dad Says

Review:

“Kelly Oxford is like your cool babysitter who teaches you about sex and sarcasm in an un-creepy way. Hanging out with her book makes you wish your parents were always out to dinner.” Lena Dunham

Review:

“Kelly Oxford is the friend we all deserve-the one who tells us the best secrets, takes us on all the finest adventures, and remembers every hilariously embarrassing detail. Everything Is Perfect is sharply funny, and truly great.” Cameron Crowe

Synopsis:

The funniest — and hottest — mom on Twitter plunges you headlong into her life in her hilarious memoir, Everything Is Perfect When You’re a Liar. With her trademark blend of biting wit and self-deprecation, this side-splitting book of essays will make you laugh, cry, and then laugh some more.

Sharing her life story in Everything Is Perfect When You’re A Liar, the straight-talking and riotously funny blogger Oxford opens up about her childhood, motherhood, and life with that zany, skewed perspective that make her the toast of the social media world.

Is Kelly the next David Sedaris? The next Chelsea Handler? The next Sloane Crosley? No — they were the last Kelly Oxford…
