Publisher Comments:

For fans of Tina Fey and David Sedaris--Internet star Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, makes her literary debut. Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives--the ones we'd like to pretend never happened--are in fact the ones that define us. In Let's Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-suffering husband, Victor. Chapters include: Stanley the Magical, Talking Squirrel; A Series of Angry Post-It Notes to My Husband; My Vagina Is Fine. Thanks for Asking; And Then I Snuck a Dead Cuban Alligator on an Airplane. Pictures with captions (no one would believe these things without proof) accompany the text.

I really enjoyed this book. I saw so much of myself in her stories and outlook, it was good to know I'm not alone in my weirdness. Jenny is excellent at story telling and we are so fortunate that she has been doing this for many years and is sharing with all of us.

Laugh until you cry hysterical! I had read Jenny Lawson's blog, The Bloggess, once or twice but have become a devotee after reading this book.

From the title (mostly true memoir so her family can claim it didn't happen), through childhood (a taxidermist dad, turkeys as pets), into marriage (poor Victor) and motherhood, Jenny propels you through her life (good, bad and challenging) with an honesty that is rare.
