“Miss Fortune is so gloriously smart, deeply funny, and nakedly vulnerable, I missed it after I finished the last page the way one misses the best friend you ever had after she goes away. Lauren Weedman tells her sexiest, saddest, strangest, sweetest stories with a thrillingly unabashed voice that??s as charming as it is insightful. I laughed. I cried. I thanked my lucky stars I didn??t ever have a threesome with co-workers in the Netherlands. But most of all, I fell in love with Lauren Weedman and the raw and complicated truths she so honestly explores on every page of this absorbing book.”
??"Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild
Lauren Weedman is not okay.
She??s living what should be the good life in sunny Los Angeles. After a gig as a correspondent with The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, she scored parts in blockbuster movies, which led to memorable recurring roles on HBO??s Hung and Looking. She had a loving husband and an adorable baby boy.
In these comedic essays, she turns a piercingly observant, darkly funny lens on the ways her life is actually Not Okay. She tells the story of her husband??s affair with their babysitter, her first and only threesome, a tattoo gone horribly awry, and how the birth of her son caused mama drama with her own mother and birth mother with laugh-out-loud wit and a powerful undercurrent of vulnerability that pulls off a stunning balance between comedy and tragedy.
