FURIOUSLY HAPPY A Funny Book About Horrible Things

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jenny Lawson

Biography & Memoir • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

In her second memoir, Jenny Lawson wears the hats of both author and narrator. While her reading isn't as polished as a professional performer’s, her conviction makes this deeply personal content sound powerful and meaningful. Lawson's energy, passion, and furiously happy demeanor invite the listener into her atypical world of mental disorder, taxidermy, and family. Her ability to laugh at herself puts listeners at ease with her weighty issues, which she delivers with grace, insight, sometimes profanity, and the authenticity of a person who faces personal challenges daily. At turns funny and deeply moving, Lawson's accounts and genuine emotion will connect with listeners, whether they struggle with similar problems or not. A definite must-listen. J.F.
