Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things

#1 New York Times Bestseller

In Furiously Happy, a humor memoir tinged with just enough tragedy and pathos to make it worthwhile, Jenny Lawson examines her own experience with severe depression and a host of other conditions, and explains how it has led her to live life to the fullest:

"I've often thought that people with severe depression have developed such a well for experiencing extreme emotion that they might be able to experience extreme joy in a way that ‘normal people' also might never understand. And that's what Furiously Happy is all about."

Jenny’s readings are standing room only, with fans lining up to have Jenny sign their bottles of Xanax or Prozac as often as they are to have her sign their books. Furiously Happy appeals to Jenny's core fan base but also transcends it. There are so many people out there struggling with depression and mental illness, either themselves or someone in their family―and in Furiously Happy they will find a member of their tribe offering up an uplifting message (via a taxidermied roadkill raccoon). Let's Pretend This Never Happened ostensibly was about embracing your own weirdness, but deep down it was about family. Furiously Happy is about depression and mental illness, but deep down it's about joy―and who doesn't want a bit more of that?

Let's Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir
From the New York Times bestselling author of Furiously Happy...

When Jenny Lawson was little, all she ever wanted was to fit in. That dream was cut short by her fantastically unbalanced father and a morbidly eccentric childhood. 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.

In the irreverent Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson’s long-suffering husband and sweet daughter help her 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. For every intellectual misfit who thought they were the only ones to think the things that Lawson dares to say out loud, this is a poignant and hysterical look at the dark, disturbing, yet wonderful moments of our lives.

Includes a new chapter!

You Are Here: An Owner's Manual for Dangerous Minds

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

A new book from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jenny Lawson, destined to be a classic―part therapy, part best friend, part humor, part coloring book.

When Jenny Lawson is anxious, one of the things she does is to draw. Elaborate doodles, beautiful illustrations, often with captions that she posts online. At her signings, fans show up with printouts of these drawings for Jenny to autograph. And inevitably they ask her when will she publish a whole book of them. That moment has arrived.

You Are Here is something only Jenny could create. A combination of inspiration, therapy, coloring, humor, and advice, this book is filled with Jenny’s amazingly intricate illustrations, all on perforated pages that can be easily torn out, hung up, and shared. Drawing on the tenets of art therapy―which you can do while hiding in the pillow fort under your bed―You Are Here is ready to be made entirely your own.

Some of the material is dark, some is light; some is silly and profane and irreverent. Gathered together, this is life, happening right now, all around, in its messy glory, as only Jenny Lawson could show us.

Vamos Fazer de Conta Que Isso Nunca Aconteceu. . . (Em Portugues do Brasil)
Ria das suas desgracas.
Nao existe vida perfeita e nao ha quem nao passe por momentos dificeis. Mas existe uma boa maneira de enfrentar complicacoes: nao se leve tao a serio. Essa, pelo menos, e a formula de Jenny Lawson.

Neste livro absolutamente engracado e divertido, a autora famosa blogueira norte-americana, com milhares de seguidores na internet narra sua hilariante e pouco provavel vida. Com ela, vamos ao Texas, sua terra natal, para conhecer como cresceu a filha de um taxidermista obsessivo que a fez viver experiencias bizarras, sua adolescencia conturbada e o casamento tortuoso de 15 anos com Victor, que lhe deu uma linda filha, com a qual varios gatos disputam a atencao.

Tudo em seu cotidiano parece muito estranho e, como ela diz, -dificil de acreditar- (e por isso ela coloca fotos, para provar que e tudo, bem, verdade), mas tambem superengracado. Sua escrita e ligeira, descontraida e blogueira (no bom sentido), com alto teor de sarcasmo e ironia, muito bem dosados ao longo da narrativa.

Diversao a parte, fica a ideia do titulo: os momentos mais vergonhosos de nossa vida, aqueles que a gente quer fazer de conta que nunca aconteceram, sao os que nos definem de verdade. Tudo o que precisamos, portanto, e aprender a rir da desgraca.

Alucinadamente Feliz: Um Livro Engracado Sobre Coisas Horriveis
Jenny Lawson esta longe de ser uma pessoa comum. Ela mesma se considera colecionadora de transtornos mentais, ja que e uma depressiva altamente funcional com transtorno de ansiedade grave, depressao clinica moderada, disturbio de automutilacao brando, transtorno de personalidade esquiva e um ocasional transtorno de despersonalizacao, alem de tricotilomania (que e a compulsao de arrancar os cabelos). Por essa perspectiva, sua vida pode parecer um fardo insustentavel. Mas nao e.

Apos receber a noticia da morte prematura de mais um amigo, Jenny decide nao se deixar levar pela depressao e revidar com intensidade, lutando para ser alucinadamente feliz. Mesmo ciente de que as vezes pode acabar uma semana inteira sem energia para levantar da cama, ela resolve que criara para si o maior numero possivel de experiencias hilarias e ridiculas a fim de encontrar o caminho de volta a sanidade.

E por meio das situacoes mais inusitadas que a autora consegue encarar seus transtornos de forma direta e franca, levando o leitor a refletir sobre como a sociedade lida com os disturbios mentais e aqueles que sofrem deles, sem nunca perder o senso de humor. Jenny parte do principio de que ninguem deveria ter vergonha de assumir uma crise de ansiedade, ninguem deveria menosprezar o sofrimento alheio por ele ser psicologico, e nao fisico. Ao contrario, e justamente por abracar esse lado mais sombrio da vida que se torna possivel experimentar, com igual intensidade, nao so a dor, mas a alegria.
