Bitter is the New Black

Status: Bookseller Picks


Sarcastic, witty, and fun; Jen Lancaster brings humor to the unemployment line in pearls. Never before have I read such an entertainingly playful memoir with an actual story. From the rise of the dot com era to the fall of the industry and Jen right onto her self proclaimed smart-ass, this book will have your attention. Endless e-mails, job applications, interviews, phone calls, the unemployment office, an awkward proposal, a wedding, pet adoption, not being able to make rent, and a blog; this book has it all. I've never laughed out loud so hard while reading a book in my life and with this quick and witty read, you'll be cracking up in no time.

I can't tell you how many times I have read this book and I still laugh out loud every time.  This is the perfect book for anybody that is looking for a good funny read.  The other books by her are just as funny.

I love that she writes as if she doesn't care who is reading it. She tells it like it is and never with embarassment or a good way:smileyhappy:
