Broken (in the Best Possible Way)
Broken (in the Best Possible Way) | Jenny Lawson
154 posts | 125 read | 3 reading | 86 to read
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jenny Lawson comes her most personal book yet. As Jenny Lawson's hundreds of thousands of fans know, she suffers from depression. In Broken, she explores her experimental treatment of transcranial magnetic stimulation with brutal honesty. But also with brutal humor. Jenny discusses the frustration of dealing with her insurance company in "An Open Letter to My Insurance Company," which should be an anthem for anyone who has ever had to call their insurance company to try and get a claim covered. She tackles such timelessly debated questions as "How do dogs know they have penises?" We see how her vacuum cleaner almost set her house on fire, how she was attacked by three bears, business ideas she wants to pitch to Shark Tank, and why she can never go back to the post office. Of course, Jenny's long-suffering husband Victor--the Ricky to Jenny's Lucille Ball--is present throughout. A treat for Jenny Lawson's already existing fans, and destined to convert new ones, Broken is a beacon of hope and a wellspring of laughter. Includes Photographs and Illustrations

Jenny Lawson is always a pick. Hilarious, heartfelt, thoughtful, and relatable.

Sarahreadstoomuch I love her so much. There was a passage in this book that I deeply resonated with on my own journey understanding my mental health. I sent her a quick DM to express my gratitude for that, and she was super kind in her response. Just love her. 3w

Note to self: when holding a sleeping child, Jenny Lawson is maybe not the best choice. Trying not to laugh out loud leads to full body shakes.

I don't normally read memoirs but I had this as an audio book and it was read by the author and I found it to be relatable and enjoyable. 4⭐️

There are 3 people in my family and I'm the only one with a car and a sense of responsibility based in reality. Basically, I'm a failed Victor. I could really use a drug butler. Today I drove to the middle school 2X. Once to drop the kid. Twice to medicate the kid after repeating, "take your needs." 8 times before leaving the the house the first time.

Tamra I have a friend who can totally relate. You aren‘t alone! I could use an admin secretary in my life. 😏 6mo

School just started and it's making me take forever to read this book. But I'm laughing so hard that it's hard to keep to myself. Meanwhile, I just got diagnosed with diabetes. Jenny Lawson and I may be white bread sisters. I could never give up gluten: I mean, GRAVY.

I'm a teacher first, librarian second. Today was my first day back at work, 8 hours of pro-devo (whip-it). Last week I had minor surgery after a summer of physical therapy and they give me this chair. 😅 I could feel my butt bones for the first time in years! Meanwhile, I needed a new read. The last couple of books dragged on. It made sense to get Broken because I need that kind of humor to face this chair again tomorrow. Here's to a good year!

Confirmed. Having read all three of Jenny Lawson's memoirs, I can say with confidence I will pick up anything she writes. A now familiar blend of provoking hysterical giggles and 'WTF?!s' and gut punches. 'An open letter to my health insurance company' and passages recounting experiences with family members with dimensia are particularly heart-wrenching. Awkwarding and Editing chapters are GOLD.

Chelsea.Poole Same here. LOVE her! 7mo

Short review: This book convinced me that I probably have buttworms and I still didn‘t hate it. That sounds like a ringing endorsement to my ears!

Long review: I vow to only read Jenny Lawson in audiobook format from now on. Her writing style is so conversational that it works much better for me than it does in print. I loved most of her essays: especially those about watches, buttons, fountains, & memory fog. 👇🏻

monalyisha 1/2: I disliked a few of the crassest: about Shark Tank inventions & the art of the sensual massage. I‘m not being a prude, I swear! I liked the one about the cockchafer! 🙈 But I think when she‘s being crass, she gets a bit overcome with the delicious impropriety of it all and tends to lean on the crassness AS humor. And it‘s not…not by itself, anyway. I prefer when she uses more nuance and layered language to create her punchline. 8mo
monalyisha 2/2: Lawson is capable of great writing: circular, in a totally satisfying way; vulnerable; laugh-out-loud funny; and FULL of constructed meaning and even lyrical wisdom. The crassness sometimes gets in the way of her better qualities (and *sometimes*, though less often, enhances them). (edited) 8mo
Amiable Buttworms. 😄 Have you read her other books? I thought “Let‘s Pretend This Never Happened” was her best. 8mo

Been working on some stuff that boiled over since the pandemic. Personal issues I avoided dealing with. Became obsessed with tracking my reading and doing my stats as an effective avoidance. I couldn't sustain it and just stopped mid 2020, which meant I had a lot less to post here. #TherapyPost

Tagged book is one on my #TBR that I've also been avoiding.

Jenny Lawson has made a career out of writing about her struggles with mental health issues. She‘s a self-described basket case. To me, she is honest, self-effacing, real, raw —and very, VERY funny. I adore her. And Owlexander Hamilton. 😀

Jenny Lawson is a blogger who speaks candidly about her struggles with depression.

I can't possibly express how much I loved this book! This was the first I've read by Lawson, and was pleasantly surprised to find myself with an amazing collection of autobiographical essays - some hilarious, some depressing, but all wonderful and ultimately uplifting in their own right. Lawson is endearing and delightful and honest.

GondorGirl Her book about depression completely changed my life. Not because it offered any new treatments or coping mechanism, but because it made me look at the good days in a different light. I've probably given out a dozen copies as gifts. 13mo
BookDragonNotWorm @GondorGirl I feel the same way - a change in perspective is a real game changer! I've been trying to get my mom (who has dealt with severe depression, anxiety, and eating disorders since her teens) to read her books, but no luck so far. 13mo
GondorGirl @BookDragonNotWorm the audio books are phenomenal if she likes to listen to things. 13mo
BookDragonNotWorm @GondorGirl She tends to have a hard time focusing, but I'll suggest it to her. Thank you! 😁 13mo

I‘ve had this Litsy Award winner in my TBR pile seemingly forever. I decided it‘s recent win for Best Memoir (I‘m pretty sure that was the category) was reason enough to read it. Funny, raw, honest, heartbreaking and heartwarming, this one had me laughing out loud, nodding in agreement, and appreciative of Lawson‘s humor & generosity in sharing her life with readers. Easy to see why it‘s a favorite on Litsy.

Listening to Jenny Lawson narrate is what I imagine talking to her at a party would be like (but of course, having read the chapter about introverts, I know would never happen in a million years). She can make the wildest stuff funny, and then hit you with a sincere, more serious thought. I really enjoyed this! I‘ve read her before but never listened to the audiobook, which is definitely the way to go. ⬇️

MallenNC I loved how openly she talks about her challenges and also loved the more lighthearted chapters. I write in my job so I laughed so much during her chapter on copy editing notes. Thanks to @cinfhen for nudging me to read this for #NYWD @monalyisha 1y
monalyisha I‘m gonna add the audio of this to my TBR, too. It‘s decided! I‘ve tried her Furiously Happy in print & couldn‘t get into it…but I know people love it/her! It may just be a formatting quibble. 1y

Why are Jenny Lawson‘s stories so mesmerizing? They're horrific car wrecks I can‘t seem to peel my eyes away from, followed by the recollection of all the moments when I have been involved in similar car wrecks. Yes, I think that is it. I‘m compelled by the realization that there are more out there like me. It is comforting. And it‘s terrifying!

This section in Lawson‘s book is a somber chapter about health insurance and how they fail anyone who is suffering from (fill in the blank). In her case in particular it‘s about her mental health. I‘ve worked in HR and spent hours tussling with insurance companies on behalf of our employees. Every word she says is true. “Sometimes I think you want me dead.”

kyraleseberg Incredibly relatable, my family just experienced the same after my husband had a sudden bizarre ICU stay (non-Covid thankfully) and now dealing with a mountain of medical bills because insurance is a really expensive scam. 1y

I hate to write this but I just didn't find this book quite as funny or engaging as her previous books. I applaud her for being open & honest about her struggles with mental illness & other health issues. But these essays didn't seem to flow as well & felt almost disjointed at times, which made me think that this book was more of a lift for her to finish.

But I still gave it a pick because she gives a voice to all of us who feel broken at times.

My #NYWD list from @Bookzombie. Seems like it's a great list. The Thursday Murder Club and Tender is the Flesh have been on my radar for awhile. I bought Broken a month or so ago, but haven't gotten around to reading it yet. Same with the Fifth Season. My bookclub might be reading that sometime next year though, so I'm going to save it.

Thanks again @monalyisha for organizing all of this.

vivastory What a fun list! I've read, & loved, # 3, 5, 6 & 10. I checked out the Osman from the library today. 1y

Patchshank @Bookzombie I loved listening to Lawson's other books on audio. I checked libby to see if they had it and the wait-list is long. I was on it, but the ebook went on sale so I bought it. I'll probably just read this one even though it just won't be the same. 😅 1y
