My Fair Lazy by: Jen Lancaster
I picked this book up because a) it was on sale at Barnes & Noble, and b) because many people had asked me if I’d ever read anything Jen Lancaster wrote because my own writing was similar. I hadn’t. So I did.
I see what they are saying. We both write kinda rambly pieces about nothing in particular: autobiographical bits of silliness designed to make you laugh at us, if not with us. My life, however, is a good bit different than hers. She is unencumbered by familial obligations and has enough disposable income to buy what she wants and do what she wants. That said, we’d probably get along famously.
The premise of this book is funny. With her new-found success, she finds herself at highbrow events, unable to discuss anything with more depth than reality show antics. She takes on a project to improve herself: to make herself more well-read, to learn about the arts and food and wine and things of that nature. None of which comes especially naturally to her, as she has to fight the siren song of America’s Next Top Model.
