Hungry Heart

(2016)
A non fiction book by

 
 
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author and "one of the biggest names in popular fiction" (USA TODAY) comes a collection of personal essays as uproariously funny and moving as the best of Nora Ephron and David Sedaris.

 
In her forty-something years, bestselling novelist Jennifer Weiner has gone from feeling like an outsider in her picturesque Connecticut hometown ("a Lane Bryant outtake in an Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue"), to being a Princeton graduate, to a successful newspaper reporter in Philadelphia, and, eventually, a mother, novelist, and occasional Hollywood name.
Weiner's hilarious and insightful chronicles of her life cover everything from her many (many) bad dates to her mother coming out of the closet at age 54 to casting a goat in her sitcom. Jennifer pairs her trademark sharp humor with disarming candor and an extraordinary eye for detail in this, her first nonfiction work.
No subject is off limits, and that includes hearing her daughter use the F-word - fat - for the first time, and learning from the police that her estranged father had died in his girlfriend's bathroom.

Crazy-funny and deeply touching by turns, this collection will prove that the voice behind Jennifer Weiner's beloved novels is every bit as endearing, smart, and quirky as it is in real life.
