"Miss Fortune" is so gloriously smart, deeply funny, and nakedly vulnerable, I missed it after I finished the last page the way one misses the best friend you ever had after she goes away. Lauren Weedman tells her sexiest, saddest, strangest, sweetest stories with a thrillingly unabashed voice that s as charming as it is insightful. I laughed. I cried. I thanked my lucky stars I didn t ever have a threesome with co-workers in the Netherlands. But most of all, I fell in love with Lauren Weedman and the raw and complicated truths she so honestly explores on every page of this absorbing book.

Lauren Weedman's "Miss Fortune" is like a pearl that washed up on a beach full of seaweed, tar balls and plastic six-pack holders. It's a jewel sparkling amid a landscape of literary pollution. "LA Weekly"

Reseña del editor:

Lauren Weedman is not okay.

She’s living what should be the good life in sunny Los Angeles. After a writing gig withThe Daily Show with Jon Stewart, she scored parts in blockbuster movies, which led to memorable recurring roles on HBO’sHung and Looking. She had a loving husband and an adorable baby boy.

In Fresh Perspectives on Having It All, she turns a piercingly observant, darkly funny lens on the ways her life is actually Not Okay. She tells the story of her husband’s affair with their nanny, her first and only threesome, a tattoo gone horribly awry, and how the birth of her son caused mama drama with her own mother and birth mother with laugh-out-loud wit and a powerful undercurrent of vulnerability that pulls off a stunning balance between comedy and tragedy.
