Cattiness and laughs

I just finished Bright Lights, Big Ass by Jen Lancaster. Her first book was Bitter is the new black. The book is a combination of essays, letters of complaint and emails to her friends and husband.

Downwardly mobile Chicagoan Lancaster is a funny woman, who rants on her life, weird neighbors, temp jobs and life not being Sex in the City. She does not suffer fools lightly. Her job interview riff on the false expectations set by Carrie in Sex in the City is a classic. Her battle with the squirrel is a keeper too. It is a quick read and a lot of fun. It does include a number of F words.
