Short Synopsis
In these comedic essays, award-winning actress Lauren Weedman turns a piercingly observant, darkly funny lens on the ways her life is actually not okay.

Full Synopsis
Lauren Weedman is not okay.

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

In these comedic essays, 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 babysitter, 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.

"Weedman's charm and self-deprecating humor easily draw the reader in, and her willingness to tangle with hard truths make this a deeply affecting account of salvaging a life from wreckage." ---Publishers Weekly
