Jen Lancaster was living the sweet life-until real life kicked her to the curb.

Jen Lancaster was living the sweet life-until real life kicked her to the curb. She had the perfect man, the perfect job-hell, she had the perfect life-and there was no reason to think it wouldn't last. Or maybe there was, but Jen Lancaster was too busy being manicured, pedicured, highlighted, and generally adored to notice. This is the smart-mouthed, soul-searching story of a woman trying to figure out what happens next when she's gone from six figures to unemployment checks and she stops to reconsider some of the less-than-rosy attitudes and values she thought she'd never have to answer for when times were good. Filled with caustic wit and unusual insight, it's a rollicking read as speedy and unpredictable as the trajectory of a burst balloon.

I think my main take away at reading this again after several years of reading her la...

4.0 Bitter is the New Black : Confessions of a Condescending, Egomaniacal, Self-Centered Smartass,Or, Why You Should Never Carry A Prada Bag to the Unemployment Office
Oh, how I identified with this book. Although I was recently unemployed by choice, due to a move, and not laid off like Lancaster, I really read this at just the right time for it to resonate with me. Lancaster is a young wealthy salesperson in Chicago right before 9/11 when her company merges with ...

Absolutely LOVED it! Hilarious throughout and well worth the out loud chuckles while reading at the gym.

Somehow I'd managed to confuse myself into thinking this was a book of essays or blog posts, so it was a bit of a surprise to discover a memoir instead. Once I'd gotten my head around my misunderstanding, I ended up really liking it though. I was gratified to see that Jen wasn't quite as Egomaniacal...
