Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson

Furiously Happy is a collection of essays from Jenny Lawson.  Most of them are LOL humorous anecdotes and her musings from her life.  However, they are interspersed with some about her struggle with mental illnesses.  It is an unusual combination – and a stark contrast – that works.  However, it is a paradox we are familiar with.  That the funniest people sometimes tend to be the saddest in their real lives.  Lawson makes a conscious effort not to be one – and hence the title of the book.  It is one of the funniest books I’ve read for a long time.  Her endless musings. paranoia and exaggerations create images and situations that are hilarious.

Recommendation: Must Read.
