Is it necessary to have a current understanding of pop culture to enjoy this book's humor? I've found when I've read other memoirs by modern day celebrities that I have no idea what they are talking about and miss the joke. I have no idea who Jenny Lawson is, but I keep hearing great things about this book.

Cagne There are some movie references (e.g. The godfather), but if you are bothered by missing stuff it would be good to start by reading Lawson's previous book, 'Let's pretend this never happened', mostly because of her passion for taxidermy, which is a recurring theme.
