In Furiously Happy, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jenny Lawson explores her lifelong battle with mental illness. A hysterical, ridiculous book about crippling depression and anxiety? That sounds like a terrible idea.
But terrible ideas are what Jenny does best.
As Jenny says
A Winner of the 2016 Alex Awards
Nightmarish villains with superhuman enhancements.
An all-seeing social network that tracks your every move.
Mysterious, smooth-talking power players who lurk behind the scenes.
A young woman from the trailer park.
And her very smelly cat.
Together, they will decide the future of mankind.
The premise: a survivalism-obsessed father takes his young daughter deep into European woods and eventually explains that the rest of the world has ended - they are the only ones left. Written through the girl Peggy's perspective, we witness years of this strange relationship, until the plots finally shifts and we are left with closure (of sorts). Award-winning debut author! --Naomi
Andrew, Naomi, and Hana all loved. One of those books about books filled with a fantastical story based in a very strange bookstore in San Francisco. Bonus: the books on the cover glows in the dark!
