Today we send Texas-sized #BookBday wishes to Jenny “The Bloggess” Lawson and FURIOUSLY HAPPY!
It’s a September 2015 LibraryReads pick, an October 2015 Indie Next pick, an ALA 2015 “Read ‘n Rave” pick, and a BEA 2015 “Shout ‘n Share” selection…and that was all the stuff before the book went on sale. The media is crazy for Jenny’s book like Rory is crazy about being on the cover:
“In her second memoir, bestseller Lawson embraces the odd, writing in hilarious, poignant detail about her lifelong struggle with anxiety and depression.” — People Magazine, a Best Books of Fall pick
“The Bloggess proves again to be a Texas treasure. For every tough moment there are three (or five or eight) times you will laugh, or if you’re a big old grump, smile, and wish the Lawsons would move in next to you.” — The Houston Chronicle
“Lawson can be rather direct and, like many weapons-grade humorists, the more raw she is, the funnier she gets.” — Austin American Statesmen
A Kirkus Reviews 10 Funny and Fast Reads pick (“Kudos to Lawson for being a flagrant and witty spokesperson for this dark subject matter.”)
The Washington Post Q&A: “Jenny Lawson on FURIOUSLY HAPPY and when it is okay to call her ‘crazy.’”
Much more to come, including NPR’s “Here and Now,” Elle, Health, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, and Texas Monthly, to name a few.
