“It’s not like you’re going to be attacked by a zombie and think, Jesus if only I had my snow globe!”
“I’m made from a lot of unfulfilled arson.”
“Also I can’t stop pronouncing the p in hampster. There’s no p in hamster. Well obviously you’ve never squeezed one hard enough, there’s tons of pee in them.”
“The point is, she continued, we are not dirt poor. We are wealthy with dirt. Our whole house is built on it and I suspect it’s what’s keeping most of the furniture stuck together. That’s why you should never dust too much, because dust is what holds the world together.”
There really is no cohesive way to explain this book. It’s completely bonkers at times and utterly poignant and psychologically deep at others. Lawson writes with no filter and thus having read it, feels like you were having a goofy drunken conversation with a friend, examining the craziness of the world and exploring your inner anxieties.
I did this one on audiobook… And I felt like it was watch easier to understand hearing it through her own voice with proper intonation. At times it reminded me of a Sedaris book and other times it reminded me of a self help novel. But all I felt the whole time was enjoyment and was happy with the moments of introspection that it inspired. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Tell me what’s the last book that made you laugh?
