When Jenny Lawson was little, all she ever wanted was to fit in. That dream was not to be, thanks to her eccentric taxidermist father and a truly bizarre family life. It did, however, open up an opportunity for Lawson to find the humour in the most terribly human moments - the ones we want to pretend never happened - the very same moments that make us the people we are today, for better or worse. Let's Pretend This Never Happened is for anyone who's ever felt like a misfit or thought they were the only ones to think the things that Jenny Lawson dares to say out loud. Like laughing at a funeral, this book is both irreverent and impossible to hold back once you get started.
' .. You know that really you shouldn't be laughing and probably you'll go to hell for laughing, so maybe you shouldn't read it. That would be safer and wiser.' - Neil Gaiman
'Jenny Lawson is hilarious, snarky, witty, totally inappropriate, and 'Like Mother Teresa, Only Better.' - Marie Claire magazine
'There's something wrong with Jenny Lawson - magnificently wrong. I defy you to read her work and not hurt yourself laughing.' - Jen Lancaster
