Description

#1New York Times Bestseller

InFuriously 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 whatFuriously 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 areso many people out there struggling with depression and mental illness, either themselves or someone in their family--and inFuriously 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?
