Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“She makes us feel instantly seen and fully understood in all of our alternately painful and hilarious humanity.” Lori Gottlieb, New York Times bestselling author
“[A] winning mix of shameless irreverence, wicked humor, and vulnerability.” Kirkus Reviews
“Her books are designed for listening…Lawson can be screamingly funny, especially in her rambling asides…And if ever you want to feel less neurotic, which I often do, Lawson’s an excellent distraction.” Vulture (audio review)
“Her delivery is zany, clever, and raunchy. Her conversations with party guests, her long-suffering husband, her sister, and even herself are flat-out hilarious. And the situations she finds herself in are comic gold. Beneath the banter, however, is a heartbreaking chronicle of what goes on in the mind of a person dealing with anxiety and depression.” Booklist (starred review)
“With vigorous pacing, every frantic thought and wacky scenario is presented in an authentic voice that each listener will not only understand but also recognize as being within their own mental capacity. Another treasure in the Lawson collection.” AudioFile
