Event Description: Book description:

Jen Lancaster hates to burst your happy little bubble, but life in the big city isn't all it's cracked up to be. Contrary to what you see on TV and in the movies, most urbanites aren't party-hopping in slinky dresses and strappy stilettos. But lucky for us, Lancaster knows how to make the life of the lower crust mercilessly funny and infinitely entertaining...

Whether she's reporting rude neighbors to Homeland Security, harboring a crush on her grocery store, or fighting - and losing - the Battle of the StairMaster, Lancaster explores how silly, strange, and not so fabulous real city living can be. And if anyone doesn't like it, they can kiss her big, fat, pink, puffy down parka.

A bittersweet treat for anyone who's ever survived the big city. - Jennifer Weiner
