9780062309402: Immature Adult: My Refusal to Grow Up Despite Appearances to the Contrary

From Jenny Johnson, Los Angeles based comedy and television writer and one of the funniest women on Twitter, comes a collection of humorous essays in the bestselling vein of Kelly Oxford, Laurie Notaro, and Sarah Colonna centered around her immature reactions in the face of very adult situations.

A self-proclaimed writer, proud Texan, (*%#$*), and owner of two dogs, Jenny Johnson was first discovered through her hilarious take-downs of celebrity and popular culture on Twitter. Her highly publicized and very hilarious online war with Chris Brown garnered her nationwide media attention and many virtual high-fives (and even forced Mr. HotHead to delete his Twitter account). Best of all, being funny on Twitter got the attention of Hollywood, and Jenny Johnson is now a highly sought-after comedy writer for television. In her first book, Immature Adult, Johnson tells tales of her upbringing in Texas with a mother whose anxiety was nearly as high as her hair and a father who was the first to laugh at her jokes. From accidentally landing in an AA meeting in a church basement and sticking around for the spectacle to taking her mom on the holiday house tour of Dallas (and trying mightily to keep from rolling her eyes out of her head) to her uncomfortable position as stepmom to two children when she never ever wanted a kid of her own. Jenny is a perpetual surly teenager in a grown-up's body -- an immature adult.

Written with brutal honesty and an eye for the absurdity of modern life on and off the Internet, this is a book for anyone who has ever wanted to say ''I know you are, but what am I?'' to your boss. No one gets off scot-free in this hilarious collection, least of all Jenny Johnson.
