Jenny Lawson stepped in the spotlight with her blog The Bloggess, mostly because of her special kind of humor. She is very open with her personal life and does that in a funny way. Her first book Let’s Pretend This Never Happened was a New York Times bestseller. It was a story of her growing up in Texas with her functionally dysfunctional family.
Now, she released a new book, Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Terrible Things. In this book, she stayed faithful to her style- honest and hilarious. Furiously Happy is her story of living with a mental illness. It’s a collection of essays about her struggle with depression and anxiety during the years. This book shows you ‘how to thrive in spite of your brain being a real bastard’.
Lawson isn’t afraid to put herself out there, and talk about embarrassing and terrible things we all get to experience from time to time. She embraces the weird and makes it funny and honest. That is probably why most people can relate to what she’s talking about and think to themselves- So it wasn’t just me… She says the same thing it in her own way ‘Most of my favorite people are dangerously fucked-up but you’d never guess because we’ve learned to bare it so honestly that it becomes the new normal.’ Furiously Happy is an outrageous book with no boundaries that will make you laugh but at the same time reflect on life.
