LOOKING'S DORIS SPILLS THE BEANS ON HOW HAVING IT ALL CAN EQUATE TO NOTHING
A scorchingly funny collection of essays from HBO's Looking star and former Daily Show (Comedy Central) writer, Lauren Weedman.
Lauren Weedman is not okay.
She's living what should be the good life in sunny Los Angeles. After a writing gig with the Daily Show, she scored parts in blockbuster movies, which led to memorable recurring roles on HBO's Hung and Looking. She had a loving husband, and an adorable baby boy.
In FRESH PERSPECTIVES ON HAVING IT ALL, she turns a piercingly observant, darkly funny lens on the ways her life is actually Not Okay. She tells the story of her husband's affair with their nanny, her first and only threesome, a tattoo gone horribly awry and how the birth of her son caused mama drama with her own mother and birth mother with laugh-out-loud wit and a powerful undercurrent of vulnerability that pulls off a stunning balance between comedy and tragedy. nitroflare filejoker
