Jen Lancaster is funny. That is the only word I can use to describe her. She is funny. Laugh out loud, snort your drink out of your nose, kind of funny. Bright Lights, Big Ass is a collection of essays (with a scattering of emails throughout) ranging from topics about the Holy Trinity (Target, Trader Joe’s and IKEA) to her all-out war with a little red squirrel whose main purpose it is to antagonize her dogs. I LOVED this book and am going to check out both Pretty in Plaid and Bitter is the New Black and her newest book, Such a Pretty Fat. She also has a website you might want to check out.
