Oh, such a great read! I laughed until I cried, then I cried some and came back for more. Parts of it were so outrageously funny that they absolutely demanded to be read out loud to whomever was nearby. A celebration of the bizarre and strange and often furry things in life, bloggess-turned-author Jenny Lawson is a comic genius. Lawson relates anecdotes from her rural upbringing with a father who has a zeal for taxidermy through adulthood, marriage, career, and family life. This book reads like some demented cross between Jen Lancaster meets Jeanette Walls' "Glass Castle" and we are all the richer for it.
