My Fair Lazy Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

My Fair Lazy is a great book. Our editors rated it with a top 5 stars.

Readers have followed New York Times bestselling author Jen Lancaster through job loss, sucky city living, weight loss attempts, and 1980s nostalgia. Now, in this bitter and witty memoir, Jen chronicles her efforts to achieve cultural enlightenment, with some hilarious missteps and genuine moments of inspiration along the way.

Jen uses any means necessary on her quest to better herself: reading canonical literature, viewing classic films, attending the opera, researching artisan cheeses, and even enrolling in etiquette classes to improve her social graces.

In Jen’s corner is a crack team of experts, including Page Six socialites, gourmet chefs, an opera aficionado, and a master sommelier. She may discover that well-regarded, high-priced stinky cheese tastes exactly as bad as it smells, and that her love for Kraft American Singles is forever. But one thing’s for certain: Eliza Doolittle’s got nothing on Jen Lancaster—and failure is an option.

    Jen has yet to let me down. Her storytelling keeps me up late at night and slightly groggy in the morning, but it's totally worth it! I bought two of her books on my I Pad and the one thing that hugely disappoints me is that the footnotes are at the end of the book. It would be nice to enjoy her peanut gallery thoughts as I am reading her books. So please, if this can be changed, I would re-read the books of hers I have in my library. Jen- Thanks for making me smile and laugh when I need it the most. Kara Bjorkman

    I haven't yet finished the book, but I too enjoy Jen Lancaster's use of footnotes in her writing... If you press the footnote number in the text, you jump to the footnote - if you press the number again in the footnote section, you jump back the page. It was a little frustrating at first before I realized that, but I nearly didn't buy due to the other poster saying they were inaccessible. I didn't want anyone to miss out on Jen's new tome due to being an iBook newbie, like me! ...so far, I am enjoying it a great deal! Thanks Jen, keep up the good work!

    Not often do you read a book and say "I want to be her". Love it! I want Jen, Fletch, Stacey, Maisy and the Thunderbirds to come over for dinner. I have read all her books and am now taking suggestions on future books from her. Jen thank you again for saying everything I am thinking.

    Hilarious per usual but was a little disappointed I couldn't read the footnotes. Those are usually the best part!
