Her readers obviously don't care whether her book is fact or fiction. The memoir debuted at the top of the Washington Post and new York Times nonfiction bestseller lists, and in her introduction, Lawson writes, "This book is totally true, except for the parts that aren't". Lawson relishes revealing plenty about her life, except just how much she may exaggerate about it. She is hugely popular online where she's detailed her life on the Web for years.
The book skims through a series of comic essays, akin to Sedaris if he were an anxiety-stricken Texas mother with a fascination for taxidermy and the zombie apocalypse. Her writing may be an acquired taste for some, especially with the high animal body count, the constant cursing and the occasionally disjointed manner. But for her many fans, the randomness will only add to the charm. The tale is meandering, though never boring and she finds her footing in the world of blogging, where quirkiness is queen.
