Jen Lancaster hates to burst your happy little bubble, but life in the big city isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Contrary to what you see on TV and in the movies, most urbanites aren’t party-hopping in slinky dresses and strappy stilettos. But lucky for us, Lancaster knows how to make the life of the lower crust mercilessly funny and infinitely entertaining.

Whether she’s reporting rude neighbors to Homeland Security, harboring a crush on her grocery store clerk, or fighting—and losing—the Battle of the Stairmaster, Lancaster explores how silly, strange, and not-so-fabulous real city living can be. And if anyone doesn’t like it, they can kiss her big, fat, pink, puffy down parka.

    " I giggled all the way through. At times, I had to mop tears from my eyes. "

    " Love the book, love her writing, love her humor. Chances are we wouldn't be friends in real life but how many authors would you be? That has no bearing on how funny it is. The only thing that keeps me from giving it 5 stars is she loooves those footnotes. They can be funny comments but they are annoying. Especially keeping them straight when there's several on one page. There isn't a lot of 'plot' in this one but I did feel it with her when she saw her book in a store the first time. She's not one to show actual humanity a lot and it was a very personal moment. "

    " I enjoyed this book, less than Such a Pretty Fat. Maybe I like that Such a Pretty Fat was more a story and not so much essays like this book. I also refuse to live in a big city, so maybe it just wasn't as easy to relate to... "
