About this author

Jen Lancaster is the author of her own memoirs including: as Bitter is the New Black, Bright Lights, Big Ass, Such A Pretty Fat, Pretty in Plaid, My Fair Lazy, and the newest: Jeneration X.

She has also dabbled with fiction in her first book, If You Were Here.

Jen Lancaster isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but she does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from her feed.

I'm pleased to announce many exciting happenings this week before I go underground and finish two books in the next five months! (Is the "because I'm a procrastinating moron" implied here or do I need to be more explicit? Wait, don't answer that.)

First up on Thursday, I'm delighted to be in conversation with actress/author Jenny Mollen about her hilarious memoir I Like You Just the Way I Am.

“I can't believe anyone would voluntarily run 26 miles. Sometimes I sit on the couch cross-legged because I don't feel like walking to the bathroom.”
Jen Lancaster

“If you're anorexic, you're doing it wrong."

I swat him with a dish towel. "No, no, I mean anorexics look in the mirror, and even if they're eighty pounds, they still see a fat girl. I'm a hundred pounds heavier than I was in high school, my veins are full of creme fraiche, and yet I look in the mirror, take in the hair and makeup, and think, Damn, baby, you fiiine.”
Jen Lancaster

“You want to change? Lose the bitch. Be nicer to people. Stop telling them to "bite you" and threatening to kick them until they're dead.”
