Lets Pretend This Never Happened

Two days away from the big year made me want to end this year with a BANG.

April 17, 2012 is going to be a big day.

Let's Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson will make it's debut in the world.

If you don't buy a copy of this novel you're insane. Or maybe you're insane to buy this novel. Either way insanity will happen so buy the AWESOME.

If the name Jenny Lawson doesn't sound familiar but The Bloggess should (and if it doesn't, I suggest you move your ass right over there... she's brilliantly insane <-- that's the biggest compliment, trust me).

Enough gushing. Here's the scoop...

For fans of Tina Fey and David Sedaris-Internet star Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, makes her literary debut.

When Jenny Lawson was little, all she ever wanted was to fit in. That dream was cut short by her fantastically unbalanced father (a professional taxidermist who created dead-animal hand puppets) and a childhood of wearing winter shoes made out of used bread sacks. It did, however, open up an opportunity for Lawson to find the humor in the strange shame spiral that is her life, and we are all the better for it.

Lawson's long-suffering husband and sweet daughter are the perfect comedic foils to her absurdities, and help her to uncover the surprising discovery that the most terribly human moments-the ones we want to pretend never happened-are the very same moments that make us the people we are today.

Let's Pretend This Never Happened is a poignantly disturbing, yet darkly hysterical tome for every intellectual misfit who thought they were the only ones to think the things that Lawson dares to say out loud. Like laughing at a funeral, this book is both irreverent and impossible to hold back once you get started.

AUTHOR BIOS: Known for her sardonic wit and her hysterically skewed outlook on life, Jenny Lawson has made millions of people question their own sanity, as they found themselves admitting that they, too, often wondered why Jesus wasn't classified as a zombie, or laughed to the point of bladder failure when she accidentally forgot that she mailed herself a cobra. Her blog (www.thebloggess.com) is award-winning, extremely popular, and she is considered to be one of the funniest writers of our generation by at least three or four people.

TOLD YOU. TOTAL ROCKSTAR. Now you know her... you're welcome.
