My grandparents would be very proud. Maybe.

You guys.  My book has now been translated into Czech, which is awesome because my dad’s parents are Czech and if they were still alive I think they would be very proud.  Or they’d change their names and pretend they were Bolivian.

I never know what the covers are going to look like so it’s always a surprise.  This one is a particular favorite because I’m pretty sure they dressed up a live mouse in a Shakespearean costume, and also because it literally has the word “fuck” scrawled right on the front cover.  That’s not something I did myself.  The cover is intentionally vandalized.  And that is awesome.

letspretendthisneverhappened

I think it translates to “Fuck.  This is true?”  Which?  Fair enough, I guess.

Apparently it’s getting good reviews, although I can’t read them because I don’t speak Czech.  But I did do a translation of one of them and this paragraph was pretty explanatory:

“When the snake looks like a rattlesnake and still has before him an armed to the teeth mother, it’s the same as if you were in front of the cop and pulled out a fake gun. In both cases you are expecting nothing but death. Texas is a state where they once banned sodomy and oral sex, but calmly here in the name of passion hunting is tolerated when guys smell like skunks.”

So, yeah.  NAILED IT.

PS. This could never have happened without your amazing support so as a small token of thanks I’m giving away an autographed copy of my book in whatever language you want.  Or an autographed copy of someone else’s book.  Or a banana.  You want me to sign a banana?  ‘Cause I can do that.  You need a cake?  Whatever you want really.  Just tell me what you want in the comments and I’ll randomly pick someone to send an autographed hamster or whatever it is you need.

UPDATED:  Okay, I’m sending signed weird things to several of you but the actual winner is Karen Martin, who made me cry a little with her comment:

One of my last favorite fabulous days with my mother was sitting on the beach raeding your book right when it came out. I was laughing so hard at everything and mom asked what was so funny? So I started reading aloud the part I was reading at that moment and mom grabbed the book out of my hands and proceeded to read the entire book! She loved it and once I got it back, so did I! Mom suffered from six strokes shortly thereafter and held on for almost a year after. I was blessed with the gift of caring for her during that time and would read your book to her wvwn though she couldn’t outwardly respond. I know she was laughing inside though. In her memory, I would love a book signed to her, Claudette, so I can always see a visual of the love we shared and all the laughter! You rock, Jenny, and you rocked my mom’s world, too!

Thank you so much for sharing that, Karen.  Check your email.

  140. Sending an autographed banana and hamster together right now might result in either a half-eaten banana, a frozen banana, frozen hamster, or all three. And dead animals make me sad, so I’d rather not receive a dead hamster, whether it’s autographed by you or Betty White or anyone quite frankly. By the way, have you ever noticed they sell bananas “to go” – each complete with a “Chiquita to go” sticker – at Starbucks? I love my vanilla lattes, but that seems kinda scandalous to me.

    Either way, I’d love to travel to Poland or Turkey one day, and carrying around your book in the native language would make me look less touristy, so if you’re inclined to choose me, that would be fantastic. Or an audio CD, as I spend a lot of time grumbling (or just plain chatting with myself) in my car, and I’m sure that would help.

    But congrats whether you choose me or not, I know how awesome this is (I’m a photojournalist). Your book was hysterical and this just reminds me that I need to read it again soon.

    I want a signed copy of your UK book because for one it’s super freakin cool like why does the UK get fancy lettering and we just have regular lettering I don’t get that I mean yeah they’re fancier people but shouldn’t we get fancier lettering because we are so unfancy and need the copy of Jenny Lawson’s memoir with fancy lettering to remind us to be fancier? I’m sure that will fix the fancy problem we are having here wow look at that someone should hire me. Give me a job. Hahaha I’m kidding (I’m totally not kidding). Also because I thought it would be a good idea to read my physical copy of your book in the bathtub (because reading the kindle version in the bathtub is a bit ambitious, even for me) and something brushed across my leg and of course my first thought was it was a fish, like one of those scary deep sea fish that no one wants to fuck with, like with the teeth. I’m not about to get my leg chopped off in my bathtub, how ridiculous is that? So naturally my first reaction was to throw the book (your book, obviously) towards the direction of the leg tickling in the bath therefore ruining your book. Turns out it wasn’t a deep sea fish and it was just a bit of the leftover bath bomb that was sticking around, who woulda thought? Anyway, a new copy of your book with fancier lettering would be awesome given that I am a college student who can’t afford a second copy of the same book because I threw the first into my bathtub at a fish that turned out to be soap isn’t a good enough reason to spend my food money for the week. And you know I’ve been searching for Scooby Snacks (like the fruit snacks not the dog food) for like years and I can’t seem to find any even though I KNOW they still exist so if like for some insane reason you actually read my babbling essay about too many random things and decide that you feel bad enough for the girl who threw her favorite book in the bathtub or like just wanna help me make the country more fancy maybe you could throw in some scooby snacks if you happen to find them in your local grocery store.

(It could be our whole dang life, but, when you have a sister to laugh and agree about how screwed up life is, then it’s a little bit easier to get through. Ya us!) Any hoot, last year was especially bad for her, so, to cheer her up, I sent my copy of your book to her. But, I can’t ask for it back because boy does she identify with it and it cracks her up (after epiphany – oh, that’s where I got the crack from). The thing is, I need to momentarily crack myself up reading it, too. I could get it from the library – but it ruins the anticipation and instant gratification of needing it. Your writing is addictive and instantly improves the mood – like crack. Only I haven’t ever had crack, so, I am assuming at this point that your book is like crack. It’s what I imagine crack would be like in a print format. Any hoot, I’d like your book in English.

PS. my family has Czech origins too. I can say words like “little dumpling” , “dustpan”, give me the wooden spoon, you’re going to get a lickin’, and “it’s so cold outside forty men froze to death already.” Seriously.

  220. I would love a signed copy of your book! I keep lending mine out and the latest receiver must have been an invisible book thief because I know I lent it out but for the life of me can’t remember to whom it when and I haven’t gotten it back! Anything signed by you would be fabulous but not something perishable. I would want to leave it out to show off and if it were, say, a banana it would get pretty gross pretty fast. One time I thought it would be fun to let my preschool class paint with silly things. The banana got so warm in their little hands and that warmth went right through the peel and…. Let’s just say I’m not crazy about bananas anymore. Um, how did I get on that? What were we talking about? Oh right! Signed book please.

His goal is to have more positive and realistic female lead characters that are not just damsels in distress or arm candy. His first comic is called Callahan. It is based in modern day England and is about a female assasin and the two female cops trying catch her. There is a super cool twist as the series goes on. All I want is for you to visit http://www.iwoacomics.com/callahan, read his first three issues and share him on twitter. He has been working on this for over 15 years while working an average of 70 hours a week at his day job and it would mean the world to him. If you pick me then you can also sign something for another fan. I love your blog, your book and your generous spirit. Please help him make his dream come true.

  341. An autographed book would be great. I have already gone through one copy…. I read it then I gave it to my sister who read it then we gave to our younger sister and she read it. After it was returned to me my daughter borrowed it after she borrowed it, it went to the land of lost books…. where I hope some else got to enjoy it. But then there was the road trip (sister have to do those!) where we had something to listen to… so that’s right we did the audio book and laughed so hard we all had tears in our eyes. I am sure other drivers may have thought we were insane or drinking… That audio copy then went to our mom who loved as much as we all did.

I would so frame that in a big shadow box with pictures of your grandparents and a lock of their hair and every memento you can cram in with it, and hang it in the foyer so it’s the first thing EVERYONE sees when they walk in. I purposely did not mention adding any taxidermy only because while funny, it is totally not cool to taxidermy your grandparents no matter how much you love them and I didn’t want to get you and Victor into a kerfuffle.

  349. Okay, so on February 9th, I actually sent you this email:

    Hi Jenny! I have a big ole fave to ask. I am a part of a wonderful group of women that occasionally raise money for worthy causes. On May 2nd, 2015, our group will be holding the first ever Cinco de Meow/Fido Fiesta in Anniston/Jacksonville Alabama. We will be at a lovely establishment called Zoe’s on the Lake. We will be selling tickets ($25/person) for a taco bar AND live music. We’re still drumming up a band (ha, snort!) and hoping to get the Gypsy Begonias. Proceeds will go to League for Animal Welfare (LAW) (our local donations-only run no-kill shelter) and Cheaha Regional Humane Society. Now, I would love beyond all measure for you to grace us with your lovely presence. But since we’re in Alabama and you’re in, you know, Texas, I realize that the logistics are fairly prohibitive. Also, I know that you hate people. Like, not individuals, but crowds of them. That being the case…I was wondering if I could prevail on you to send us a signed copy of your book to include in our silent auction. Please, please, please??
    It’s one of my favorite books of all time. I have bought and sent your first book to 5 of my friends:
    Sandy in Amsterdam; Jaquie when she was in New Zealand; Nancy who I went to school with in Alabama but now lives in Canada…and Annette and Jenni here in Alabama when they were recovering from surgery. So I have PERSONALLY spread your love and weirdness over 3 continents!

    Please, please, pretty please? I know what a giving, kind-hearted animal lover you are.

    And if you DO feel some unnatural urge to want to eat Tacos in Alabama…your taco bar ticket will be on me!

    And then my fairy godmother…or your fairy godmother….anyway A fairy godmother emailed me back and said that she could send me out a book plate instead and I could sort of have a do-it-yourself signed book. But then I haven’t seen or heard anything since then.

    So, I’d really, really love to still get a real, live autographed book to put in our silent auction.

    It’s for the puppies and kittens.

    I’m having trouble with that “include a link to your latest blog post” thingy too.

I have overcome some massive hurdles in the last two years and thanks to you I have been able to survive my health hurdles. I have learned to joke. I have learned to cry. I have learned to cope.

  453. I’ve read your book twice (and really should give it a third read). I keep trying to get my wife to read it but it seems the more I pester her to read it, the lower it goes on her reading list. How much more persuasive can I get than reading passages to myself until I’m laughing so loud that she asks me to quiet down a bit? (Admittedly, I do have a very loud laugh.)

    If I win the signed copy, I’d like the English version. Despite studying Hebrew, Italian, and Russian during my school years, I remember only a few words of them… and only know some interesting Yiddish curses – not that there’s a Yiddish version of your book (though that’d be awesome, sadly, I don’t think there’s much of a Yiddish readership anymore). Anyway, if I win, please sign the English version for me. Whether you include a passage attempting to convince my wife to read it as well is entirely up to you.

    (BTW, the copy I own was a gift from my wife, so I can’t very well get rid of that one. I’ll just have to own two copies!)

So I started reading aloud the part I was reading at that moment and mom grabbed the book out of my hands and proceeded to read the entire book! She loved it and once I got it back, so did I! Mom suffered from six strokes shortly thereafter and held on for almost a year after. I was blessed with the gift of caring for her during that time and would read your book to her wvwn though she couldn’t outwardly respond. I know she was laughing inside though. In her memory, I would love a book signed to her, Claudette, so I can always see a visual of the love we shared and all the laughter! You rock, Jenny, and you rocked my mom’s world, too!

Unless you want it to… but the French f-word is merde, which as you can see starts with an M. I’d also like cake. Or cupcakes. Am I being too greedy? I’ll share the cupcakes, I promise.

  686. I borrowed your book from a coworker several months ago because I unexpectedly decided to go to dinner and I like to read while I eat. I rarely borrow books from individuals, and it was so delightful to meet you in that unlikely way. I loved your book and now I’ve read your entire blog archives. I would love a signed copy in English. Děkuji!

  688. I finally bought your book and read it in 2 days. I laughed out loud a lot and did a bit of crying too when I read your description of what it’s like to have anxiety. It was a cry of sympathy and relief because like Emmy in the previous comment, I am giving it to my husband next so he can get a better understanding of what it’s like. Anyways, if you haven’t picked someone yet, I’d like to throw my name in the running. I work in a prison library and I would give my signed copy to the inmates to read. They need some more hilarity in their life.

    I love it. Why wasn’t the English version so direct? A copy of any version would be a treat. I agree with Brittany that an original painting by Hunter S. Thomcat would be icing on the cake.

  696. Nailed it! I’m so puzzled that the Czech cover would require a slightly different mouse pose. Does the other mouse position have a vastly different meaning in Central Europe?

  698. Personally I’d prefer an autographed hamster, but not sure you’d get that through international mail. Also, I have pet rats and I don’t see a hamster and rats getting along. Then again, if you did get it through the mail, it would be dead by the time it reached me, so then I’d just taxidermy it and put it on my mantle over my fireplace. Note to self: obtain fireplace and/or fireplace mantle.

    But you know, the US version of the book works too.

    Please tell me you’re making an awesome collage with of all these covers! So much to see. I can’t get over the fact that each country just does whatever the fakt they want with the cover. It leaves so many questions: Why does Hamlet have his wee arms in the air on the German cover? Did someone steal his skull? Is it because the title’s translation: That’s true I or? makes absolutely no sense and he’s over it all? I love them all. So happy for you.

  723. I would totally love a signed copy to give to one of my sister’s. She suffers from major chronic depression (as do I), but she also suffers from lupus, and her husband was just diagnosed with dementia with memory loss so she works full time to pay the bills and put her daughter through college. And she manages to be an encouragement to me, find time to see the bright side, makes me laugh with her quick wit and basically constantly reaffirm my faith in humanity. Similarly, reading your book and blog and it’s comments also reaffirms my faith in humanity. So I think a signed US edition copy “To Stacey,” with the declaration “Depression Lies”, signing your name however you wish. Thanks if you pick us. I realize you’ve already picked a deserving recipient But if there are any runners up that would be great.
    That Czech Republic copy with Fuck on the cover and impressive bloody handprint spatter is so badass. Maybe a new idea for your shop, mugs printed with a choice of your best book covers. I bet no one would try to steal my coffee (ahem, my Irish coffee) if it had the Czech cover on it.

I’ve felt all of the emotions you described and ever since then, you’ve been the biggest inspiration to me. Every time I have trouble getting out of bed in the morning, I think of your arm being stuck in a cow and I know that no matter what happens, your book and this blog will be here to make my day better. So thank you and I’m happy that you’re getting all of the success you clearly and undoubtedly deserve.

    I’ve told my son that grafitti us done by bad guys. (Relevant I swear) My family spent MLK Jr weekend in Prague, because it’s our favorite city. Anyhoo, we come out of the metro area Adel and sit in the bench for our bus, and my son points to the bench and says, ‘look what bad guys did’ and on the bench was a Czech advertisement for lord knows what with a dressed up mouse and a Czech phrase with the first word crossed out in black and the work ‘fuck’ written. I probably saw four benches like that while there.

    When we go back in May I should take a pic and send it to you – if they are still up at that point.
