About the Book:
In Furiously Happy,Jenny explores, with brutal honesty, the darkest parts of her life…parts she’s never fully discussed. And with it she has done something near impossible: written a hilarious, snort-inducing, tears-down-your-face book that dives deep into her life with depression and mental illness. A hysterical, ridiculous book about crippling depression and anxiety? That sounds like a terrible idea. But terrible ideas are what Jenny does best. In the words of bestselling author Brené Brown “You'll laugh, wince, writhe in discomfort, cry, then laugh again. You might even feel the need to buy a raccoon. But the two things you'll never do is doubt Jenny's brilliance or her fearlessness when it comes to having honest discussions about mental illness, shame, and the power of human resilience. She's changing the conversation one rented sloth at a time.”
About the Author:
In 2012, with the publication of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, Jenny Lawson burst on to the publishing scene, debuting at #1 on The New York Times list. While Jenny’s appearance on bestseller lists across the country might have taken some by surprise, it came as no surprise to her legions of fans who had for years followed her on TheBloggess.com, where Jenny is just as likely to talk about her purchase of a taxidermied goat as she is to discuss her struggles with anxiety and depression. With the book, new fans emerged as well such as Augusten Burroughs (“Even when I was funny, I wasn’t this funny.”) and People (“Funny, raunchy, and unexpectedly uplifting…Let’s Pretend will leave you hoping that Lawson’s next book happens and soon.”). Jenny’s events became standing room only; parties where thousands of readers who have connected with the openness and humor Jenny employs while discussing her mental illness jostled to get Jenny to sign not just their books, but also their prescription bottles.
