Bitter is the New Black – Jen Lancaster

May 28, 2008

About a month back I read Bright Lights, Big Ass by Jen Lancaster and laughed out loud through several chunks of the book. It was by far one of the funniest books I had read in a long time. So, after my last few “heavier” books, I decided I needed to lighten it up with another good laugh and picked up Bitter.

Bitter is the New Black
This book wasn’t as funny as Bright Lights, but it was extremely entertaining and a good read. This book smacked of a little more realism as you really started to really feel bad for Jen and Fletch (her boyfriend/husband in this book) as they had to make their way through some pretty tough times in an impossible job market. I would definitely recommend this book, and will definitely be picking up Jen’s newest book, Such a Pretty Fat.

is actually the prequil to Bright Lights and details the time in Jen’s life when she devolves from a VP in a large corporation to being laid off and almost homeless. It was during her time being laid off that she decided that writing was her new direction, and hence, Bitter was born.
