Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

For all the frustrated admirers of Martha Stewart, who love her style but fear that her methods are hard to duplicate, and her standards impossible to meet, there is Lancaster, best-selling author of Bitter Is the New Black (2005) and Jeneration X (2012). Lancaster chronicles a year she spent aiming for some semblance of the Martha Stewart life in her own suburban household with a skeptical husband and unruly pets. Pummeled by money problems and career setbacks, she channeled her considerable energy into searching for the Tao of Martha, turning her chaotic household into blissful party-hosting, handmade gift-giving, and converting the Drawer of Shame into an orderly repository. Lancaster includes photos, many of her dogs, in this amusing, yearlong romp through the holidays and everyday living in a tribute to Martha Stewart and all women doing the best they can. --Vanessa Bush




"Lancaster's as adept at fiction as she is at telling her own stories—no matter what she's writing, it's scathingly witty and lots of fun."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Readers will find it easy to root for the frank and funny heroine of this winsome, whimsical tale. Lancaster's downright fun novel is chick lit at its best."—Booklist (starred review)

"In a whimsical twist on the Back to the Future scenario, a bully returns to her high school days to right some wrongs...Quantum physics was never funnier. A great read."—Kirkus (starred review)


“Witty and hilarious.”—People

“Jen Lancaster has the kind of scathing wit that makes you wish she was your best friend but thankful she’s not your new neighbor.”—New York Times Bestselling Author Carrie Ryan


“Hilarious...My Fair Lazy does not ‘suck it.’ It rocks it.”—

“Light and fun and full of pop-culture musings.”—Chicago Sun-Times


“Like that dreamy pair of heels that [is] somehow both comfy and chic…a hilarious tribute to her early fashion obsessions.”—People


“She’s like that friend who always says what you’re thinking—just 1,000 times funnier.” —People


“A bittersweet treat for anyone who’s ever survived the big city.” —#1 New York Times Bestselling Author Jennifer Weiner


“She’s absolutely hilarious.”—Chicago Sun-Times
