In Such a Pretty Fat, Jen Lancaster learned how to come to terms with her body. In My Fair Lazy, she expanded her mind. Now the New York Times bestselling author gives herself—and her generation—a kick in the X, by facing her greatest challenge to date: acting her age.
Jen is finally ready to put away childish things (except her Barbie Styling Head, of course) and embrace the investment-making, mortgage-carrying, life-insurance-having adult she’s become. From getting a mammogram to volunteering at a halfway house, she tackles the grown-up activities she’s resisted for years, and with each rite of passage she completes, she’ll uncover a valuable—and probably humiliating—life lesson that will ease her path to full-fledged, if reluctant, adulthood.
Jen Lancaster is the New York Times bestselling author of six books. She has appeared on Today, The Joy Behar Show, and NPR’s All Things Considered, and she is a regular columnist for Tribune Media Services. She resides in the suburbs of Chicago with her husband and their ever-expanding menagerie of ill-behaved pets.
“Jen Lancaster is in a master class when it comes to infusing books with wit and charm.”
"Jen Lancaster has the kind of scathing wit that makes you wish she was your best friend but thankful she's not your new neighbor."
-New York Times Bestselling Author Carrie Ryan
"She's like that friend who always says what you're thinking—just 1,000 times funnier."
"She's absolutely hilarious."
