Broken (In the Best Possible Way)
April 14, 2021 11:13 AM - by Lawson, Jenny - Subscribe

Jenny Lawson's back with her third book, Broken (In the Best Possible Way). In it she chronicles her treatment with transcranial magnetic stimulation for depression, battles with hospital bills, and the many questions that come up in everyday life. Her husband Victor and her daughter (plus the many delightful animals both real and taxidermy) also make appearances throughout.

Her first two books (Let's Pretend This Never Happened and Furiously Happy) were treasures, so I'm eagerly looking forward to this one.

My husband just read this. For reference, my husband reads about 100 books a year, quietly. My review as a bystander is that he drove me absolutely fucking crazy reading this because he laughed until he cried at least 5 times.

I was unaware of who Jenny Lawson was until I recently read Furiously Happy. Christopher Moore had tweeted something about how funny it was.

First chapter I thought it was amusing, but not remarkably funny. I thought it might not be what I was looking for. I don't remember the second chapter because I was laughing too hard.

So I'll be picking this up shortly.
