Book Review: Broken (In the Best Possible Way) by Jenny Lawson

More excellence and funny from Jenny Lawson!

As usual, a series of essays, often hilarious, often dealing with her mental and physical health issues, and the poor, suffering Victor. Her daughter plays more of a role here, which makes sense as she's older. And for me, this particular collection seemed to skew slightly less funny, but it's still always a good day when you get a new book from Jenny Lawson! 

The transcranial magnetic stimulation treatments were so cool (although fighting with her insurance company over them wasn't.) And I can't stop thinking about her thinking that dog rain boots are essentially small condoms, and then she went to the pharmacy to try to get some herself, and she was looking for those rubber glove fingers that you can put over an injury, and the whole exchange was hysterical and bizarre. Much fun!

This book is published by Henry Holt, a division of Macmillan, my employer.
