My Fair Lazy

My Fair LazyJen Lancaster

Not Lancaster’s best memoir to date, but still a hoot. Her realization that she was becoming a moron, wits dulled by reality tv, inspired her to try to improve her mind a la Eliza Doolittle. Lancaster chronicles her attempts at reading literature, going to plays, trying new foods and listening to opera. There are, of course, her usual slip-ups, hilarious stories and lots of swearing. Not sure I’d want to hang out with her, but her books are a fun read
