It’s a JENaissance! The New York Times bestselling author of Pretty in Plaid gets her culture on.

Readers have followed Jen Lancaster through job loss, sucky city living, weight loss attempts, and 1980s nostalgia. Now Jen chronicles her efforts to achieve cultural enlightenment, with some hilarious missteps and genuine moments of inspiration along the way. And she does so by any means necessary: reading canonical literature, viewing classic films, attending the opera, researching artisan cheeses, and even enrolling in etiquette classes to improve her social graces.

In Jen’s corner is a crack team of experts, including Page Six socialites, gourmet chefs, an opera aficionado, and a master sommelier. She may discover that well-regarded, high-priced stinky cheese tastes exactly as bad as it smells, and that her love for Kraft American Singles is forever. But one thing is for certain: Eliza Doolittle’s got nothing on Jen Lancaster—and failure is an option.

    " Light, amusing quest to find cultural enlightenment. Lancaster explores good food, classic literature and experimental theater all the while dropping pop culture references at every turn. "

    " If you're a fan of Jen Lancaster, her latest memoir won't disappoint. If you like not-too-heavy, snarky memoirs but you've never heard of Jen Lancaster, start with Bitter is the New Black and work your way through her repertoire. She is at the top of the genre, in my opinion. "

    " Her books always make me laugh out loud. "

    " As I've found with all of the other books that I've read by Jen Lancaster she certainly didn't disappoint. She is hilarious (I was laughing out loud by page 17, which is hard for a book to make me do), blatantly honest, self-deprecating, and completely entertaining. As I flew through this one, laughing at her mishaps and flubs, I started to realize that beneath the sarcasm, biting wit, and fun, there was a real mission to improve oneself. If a book can make me laugh my ass off, provide an escape, AND give me actual, viable ways to improve MYSELF, I'd call that a winner. "
