Book Description: "Generous and entertaining." -Publishers Weekly (starred review) Finalist for the PEN/Diamonstein-Spielvogel Award for the Art of the Essay From the #1 New York Times bestselling author and columnist comes a "fiercely funny, powerfully smart, and remarkably brave" (Cheryl Strayed) collection of heartwarming personal essays "as wonderful as her fiction" (Mindy Kaling) that "will enthusiastically reach out to readers and swiftly draw them close" (Publishers Weekly , starred review). Jennifer Weiner is many things: a bestselling author, a Twitter phenomenon, and an "unlikely feminist enforcer" (The New Yorker ). She's also a mom, a daughter, and a sister, a clumsy yogini, and a reality-TV devotee. In this "unflinching look at her own experiences" (Entertainment Weekly ), Jennifer fashions tales of modern-day womanhood as uproariously funny and moving as the best of Nora Ephron and Tina Fey. No subject is off-limits in these intimate and honest essays: sex, weight, envy, money, her mother's coming out of the closet, her estranged father's death. From lonely adolescence to hearing her six-year-old daughter say the F word-fat-for the first time, Jen dives into the heart of female experience, with the wit and candor that have endeared her to fans all over the world.
