When You Find Out the World is Against You by Kelly Oxford

Thanks to Dey Street Books, we have THREE copies to give away!

The author of the New York Times bestseller Everything Is Perfect When You’re a Liar returns with a deeper and even funnier new collection of essays about the pleasures and perils of living in Kelly Oxford’s head.

Kelly Oxford likes to blow up the internet. Whether it is with the kind of Tweets that lead Rolling Stone to name her one of the Funniest People on Twitter or with pictures of her hilariously adorable family (human and animal) or with something much more serious, like creating the hashtag #NotOkay, where millions of women came together to share their stories of sexual assault, Kelly has a unique, razor-sharp perspective on modern life. As a screen writer, professional sh*t disturber, wife and mother of three, Kelly is about everything but the status quo.

Perfect for anyone who ever wished David Sedaris and Mindy Kaling would just finally write a book together already, When You Find Out the World is Against You is filled with the biting, wise, and laugh-out-loud insights that have won Kelly legions of fans. Whether she’s detailing her obsession as an eleven-year-old with going to camp so she can become a “kissing bandit,” exploring the bittersweet boredom that so often accompanies parenthood, calling out the insanity of a posse of internet poodle vigilantes, writing bracingly about the anxiety that has plagued her as long as she can remember or taking us to ride shotgun as she stalks her husband on an accidental date with another man, When You Find Out the World Is Against You is Kelly at her most honest and disarmingly funny best. Her comedic skill, down-to-earth voice, and bull’s-eye observations on the absurdity of modern life mean there is nothing quite like seeing the world through Kelly’s eyes.

It's been a while since I read a humorous books. I am honestly drawing a blank. I have read some books with bits and pieces or scenes that were funny, but I would categorize the entire book as funny. Like in the last book I read, Cards From Khloe's Flower Shop, I died laughing during the Spanx scene.

It's been awhile since I read a humorous book,so I'm at a loss for a title.

Any Terry Pratchett book gets my vote.

All of Bill Bryson's travel books are humorous, entertaining and wonderful. Thunderbolt Kid is great since it is his own story.

The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer. Laughed so much while reading that book :)

An author: Augusten Burroughs. He's one of my very favorite writers, and I think that he's a profoundly witty, perceptive smart-ass.

A book of essays: "I Was Told There'd Be Cake," by Sloane Crosley. Even the title is funny. (Therefore, book must be funny.)
