Broken (in the best possible way)

By Jenny Lawson
Narrated by: Jenny Lawson
Length: 8 hours 18 minutes

Broken (in the best possible way)

“Jenny Lawson is and will forever be my crazy, taxidermied spirit animal. In Broken she managed to make me snort coffee from my nose in laughter, then grasp at my aching heart a moment later in mutual grief. There's so much exposed nerve in this book that it is impossible not to get sucked into her vulnerability. I think she'd want you to know it's okay to come on over and linger in the pain. Just, you know, not TOO close next to her. Personal space and all that.”

“I love Nora McInerny's podcast TERRIBLE, THANKS FOR ASKING and was so bummed to find out that she would be the keynote speaker at a conference I attend every year--except for this year. Despite having missed a chance to meet Nora in person, I still got my hands on a copy of Nora's book and devoured it. She masterfully captures what it is like to live in grief and joy at the same time; to laugh through tears; to love more than one man at once, one living and one dead. You'll likely laugh aloud several times while reading, and you'll probably tear up, too. This is a quick but decidedly un-simple read.”
