I LOVED this book! It is definitely a must read! I bought Bitter is the New Black : Confessions of a Condescending, Egomaniacal, Self-Centered Smartass,Or, Why You Should Never Carry A Prada Bag to the Unemployment Office by Jen Lancaster, to take to Kansas City and I was not sorry for one moment. Ok I was sorry when in moment of brain deadness I mispronounced “egomaniacal” in front of Nate and he made fun of me all weekend, but he was annoyed by my constant laughing and snickering while reading it, so we’re even. I didn’t realize it was a memoir when I bought it, but after I did that made it even better. She totally reminds me of me if I were even more snarky and cared about Prada. She looses her high paying job and has to deal with the unemployment office, moving to the ‘hood, selling her Kate Spade bag on ebay to pay her rent and more, all recounted with wit and charm. She’s observant, smart and funny, I highly recommend this read. I’ve already pre-ordered her new book. oh and check out her website, Jennsylvania. Jenstr, Liz – go buy it! I promise you’ll like it!
