New York Times bestselling author and stand-up comedian Jen Kirkman delivers a hilarious, candid memoir about marriage, divorce, sex, turning forty, and still not quite having life figured out.

Jen Kirkman wants to be the voice in your head that says, “Hey, you’re okay. Even if you sometimes think you aren’t! And especially if other people try to tell you you’re not.”

In I Know What I’m Doing—and Other Lies I Tell Myself, Jen offers up all the gory details of a life permanently in progress. She reassures you that it’s okay to not have life completely figured out, even when you reach middle age (and find your first gray pubic hair). She talks about making unusual or unpopular life decisions (such as cultivating a “friend with benefits” or not going home for the holidays) because you don’t necessarily want for yourself what everyone else seems to think you should. It’s about renting when everyone says you should own, dating around when everyone thinks you should settle down, and traveling alone when everyone pities you for going to Paris without a man.

From marriage to divorce and sex to mental health, I Know What I’m Doing—and Other Lies I Tell Myself is about embracing the fact that life is a bit of a sh*t show and it’s definitely more than okay to stay true to yourself.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This book is full of hilarious, candid, and sometimes gut-wrenching stories. There wasn’t a single moment that I wasn’t completely invested in what happened next. She peels back the curtain and reveals every emotion we all have to go through in life, but with such grace that you almost want to apologize for laughing so much—until you realize that’s exactly what she wants you to do.”

    Sarah Colonna, bestselling author of Life As I Blow It

  • “Jen Kirkman is a pragmatist. Let her help you clear your head—‘ease in’ rather than ‘lean in.’ Life is too short not to listen to her—and she’s right about everything, except the Congressional ban on pennies.”

    Janeane Garofalo, author of Feel This Book
