Let's Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir
Apr 17, 2012
If Amy Sedaris and David Cross grew up in West Texas, had babies in the 1970s, and one of these children survived the blood and fire of a psychotic childhood, then she would have a voice like Jenny Lawson's. Give someone a dirt floor, exposure to radon, and too many encounters with mean-as-spit animals, and you have Crazy with a capital K. But Lawson is crazy in a "survive and thrive" kind of way. It takes more than garden variety crazy to have learned an important life lesson from an assassin turkey named Jenkins. Reminiscent of Mary Karr, both West Texans married into wealthy families, both of the acid wit. And all respect to MK, but Lawson is clearly now the reigning queen of quirk and twist. If your dad was a professional racer of armadillos, I think you should get to wear the crown.
