Laugh Out Loud Hilarious Once Again

Travel back in time with Jen...

Lancaster is always hilarious. This details her early years. While funny, it's not quite as satisfying as her first two books. Still, it's Lancaster and when is that girl not entertaining? Was hoping for a better ending or transition between her childhood and adult year...
Lancaster is always hilarious. This details her early years. While funny, it's not quite as satisfying as her first two books. Still, it's Lancaster and when is that girl not entertaining? Was hoping for a better ending or transition between her childhood and adult years she's already covered. She has an amazing memory of her childhood, and as with all of Jen's life, it's comical and great reading.

    Jen Lancaster returns to her same old tricks. Her fans will love it. Me not so much.

    Straight to paperback author, Jen Lancaster's first hardback book returns to her familiar and tired terrain of mean-spirited, self-absorbed, shallow and snarky commentary marketed as "humor". Airport sales must have been good for her previous efforts although I imagine this one will end up on the remainder table.

    As William F. Buckley famously said to his son Christopher about his last book, "this one doesn't work for me, sorry".

    A far better and funnier read is Bad Mother by Ayelet Waldman.
