Product Details


Los Angeles Times bestseller

“A mix of humor and humanity.”—The Oregonian
“I found myself not merely smiling, but cackling — and, in turn, tearing up or sighing with sad recognition… Weedman is skilled at using humor as a way in rather than a diversion. Even and especially at her most hilarious, she’s willing to reveal her earnest underbelly.”—Los Angeles Review of Books           

“Lauren Weedman’s Miss Fortune is like a pearl that washed up on a beach full of seaweed, tar balls and plastic six-pack holders. It’s a jewel sparkling amid a landscape of literary pollution.”—LA Weekly

Miss Fortune is so gloriously smart, deeply funny, and nakedly vulnerable, I missed it after I finished the last page the way one misses the best friend you ever had after she goes away. Lauren Weedman tells her sexiest, saddest, strangest, sweetest stories with a thrillingly unabashed voice that’s as charming as it is insightful. I laughed. I cried. I thanked my lucky stars I didn’t ever have a threesome with co-workers in the Netherlands. But most of all, I fell in love with Lauren Weedman and the raw and complicated truths she so honestly explores on every page of this absorbing book.”
Cheryl Strayed, New York Times bestselling author of Wild

“Weedman’s charm and self-deprecating humor easily draw the reader in, and her willingness to tangle with hard truths make this a deeply affecting account of salvaging a life from wreckage.”
Publisher’s Weekly

“An intelligent, hilarious, and bittersweet collection.”
