Demonstrating Woody Allen's magical math equation (comedy = tragedy + time), here is a sensational collection of witty essays about life, love, hate, kids, work, school, and more from the author of The Ex-Mrs. Hedgefund and Arm Candy.

Jill Kargman is a mother, wife, and writer living the life in New York City... a life that includes camping out in a one-bedroom apartment with some unfortunate (and furry) roommates, battling the Momzillas of Manhattan, and coming to terms with her desire for gay men. In this entertaining collection of observations, Kargman offers her unique, wickedly funny perspective as she zips around Manhattan with three kids in tow.

Kargman tackles issues big and small with sharp wit and laugh-out-loud humor: her love of the smell of gasoline, her new names for nail polishes, her adventures in New York City real estate, and her fear of mimes, clowns, and other haunting things.

Whether it's surviving a family road trip or why she can't stand Cirque du So Lame, living with a mommy vagina the size of the Holland Tunnel, or surviving the hell that was her first job out of college, Kargman's nutty self triumphs, thanks to a wonderfully wise outlook and sense of fun that makes the best of everything that gets thrown her way. And if that's not enough, Kargman illustrates her reflections with doodles that capture her refreshing voice.

    " I love folks with a wacky sense of humor, who can get through rough spots in life and always see the demented side. Jill Kargman definitely fills that bill. In SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE A NUT, she steps away from her best-selling beach reads to write about her reflections on her life thus far. She shares her tales of being a mistfit in her East Coast prep school ("Wednesday Addams in Barbieland") to a beloved apartment in New York where she did a lot of real growing up to married life with kids, crazy nannies, and Momzillas. Even her experience dealing with a skin cancer diagnosis is addressed, and she's very candid about what she went through and the scars it left behind. If you're a fan of Chelsea Handler's bawdy humor, I have a feeling you'll go nuts for this book. "

    " This memoir was SUPER irreverant which I love, but only if it's balanced with some heart, and this didn't really have that. Funny in parts, but not that great. A super quick read for the train though. It's very short. "

    " This had some great, funny moments, but overall it felt like Kargman was trying too hard. Some of the essays didn't really go anywhere and there were too many cutesy abbreviations ("'teria" for "bacteria"? really?) for my taste. "
