About Lola Lolita

When she's not busily grading papers, completing graduate coursework, and doing that which she likes to pass off as writing, she can be found neglecting the laundry and letting her children watch too much TV -- wine glass in hand.

Sometimes being a woman sucks. Do you ever feel the pressure to be perfect?
I Just Want to Be Perfect is the fourth book in the New York Times bestselling I Just Want to Pee Alone series.
It brings together 37 hilarious and relatable essays that showcase the foibles of ordinary women trying to be perfect.
The cult of perfection is a thing.
As women, we are constantly inundated with "helpful" and/or "ah-may-zing" tips to improve our looks, please our men, raise the next Einstein (in a wheat-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free environment), and feng shui the crap out of our homes.
Whether it's the hot new diet that involves only eating what you can forage from the floor of your minivan, bleaching everything from your hair to your teeth to your butt hole, or clearing your clutter by mindfully thanking your ratty underwear for its long, dedicated service before you toss them, we've all tried something to be more perfect.
We try to strive for perfection and balance in our lives, and most of us fail--spectacularly.
These are those stories.
