內容簡介


2015年亞馬遜網路書店9月好書推薦。

介紹本書前,我們先閱讀作者寫的一段話:「有些人可能會認為是『瘋狂快樂』只是一個掩蓋不負責任和愚蠢的藉口。舉例來說,不要事先告訴妳丈夫,妳要邀請袋鼠來家裡,因為沒有特別喜歡袋鼠的他可能會否決妳的邀請;而更可笑的是,誰會邀請袋鼠到自己家裡啊?但是對我丈夫而言,沒有甚麼不可以的,而且他應該更清楚的了解,在我詢問他之前已經租了這些袋鼠來家中。」

你大概會想,這是甚麼怪老婆,奇怪作者啊?這本《Furiously Happy》出版第一周旋即登上紐約時報暢銷書榜,作者Jenny Lawson用一種歇斯底里得到極盡荒謬,讓人哭笑不得的語氣展開本書,描述她長期與嚴重的憂鬱症和焦慮症做抗爭的故事。聽來有些沉重或嚴肅,其實不然,就像這本書的書名, 瘋狂的快樂!Jenny Lawson獨特的幽默感,沒有尷尬的隱私分享,讀來有一種黑色喜劇的況味,讓讀者看見瘋狂,也許,只有瘋狂,才膽敢做出這些行徑,也許「瘋」沒那麼糟反而是恰到好處。

從瘋狂行為,顛覆憂鬱症與焦慮的刻板印象,闡述愛的包容,也讓讀者從這些看似與自己無關的故事描述中,找到自我,或許美麗卻有缺陷的,然後接受缺陷,或能用它來尋找快樂的夢幻般的生活方式。

推薦這本書,學習寬容與接受,區別「理智」和「瘋狂快樂」的差異,也許妳會對生活有不同的見解。

"It's the difference between surviving life and living life. It's the difference between taking a shower and teaching your monkey butler how to shampoo your hair." Jenny Lawson - aka The Bloggess - returns with the follow-up to her bestselling memoir Let's Pretend This Never Happened, recounting stories from everyday family life in her inimitably frank, hilarious, bizarre and endearing way. She describes her battles with depression and anxiety and her quest to overcome them by saying yes to even the absurdist opportunities and making the good times gloriously good. For as Jenny says: 'You can't experience pain without also experiencing the baffling and ridiculous moments of being fiercely, unapologetically, intensely and (above all) furiously happy...' It's a philosophy that has - quite literally - saved her life.
