Product description

Summer Land1 may only be twenty-five years old, but her attention-hungry discretion-free egomaniacal disposition has landed her in more hot water situations than you've had changes of underwear 2. This collection of outrageous stories marks the quarter-century long journey of Summer Land from babyhood in Gainesville, Florida3 to how in holy hell she ended up shacked-up, married-up and knocked-up in Mudgee with an Australian who spends most of his time 15km underground (even on Valentine's Day). Summerlandish is all the hard-won, scar-leaving, tattoo-regretting, butthole-tearing lessons Summer has learned over the years - summarised here in all their glamorously gory detail, so you don't have to bother with learning them yourselves. And, unsurprisingly, she seems to know quite a bit about love, life and awkward moments involving too much caffeine and/or lack of restraint.

Author information

Summer Land is a an Emerson College Alum and hails from the US. She began blogging in 2010, released the first of her four stories as an ebook at the end of 2011, and then managed to get someone at the Sydney Morning Herald to write about it. She went on to pitch her collection of short stories (that now make up most of this book) at the 2012 Sydney Writers' Festival where she met her now publisher, and the rest is just beautiful history.

Dear Summer Land,

This is by far one of the most entertaining reads I have ever read! It's unfiltered, crass and full of farts and poops. Its uncensored, shameless, inspirational, candid and a fabulous read!
I recommend this to absolutely anyone and everyone!

Cannot wait to read your follow up.

From your newest fan x

Summerlandish is the best book I've read all year, and I'll tell you why. It's real, filter-free, hilarious, and so unbelievably relatable, that you'll kind of feel like she's your best friend. It's clear that Summer is just one of those people who has amazing things happen to her all the time. And since she just happens to also be an author, we all win. If you're traveling at all this holiday season, this book should be by your side. It's the perfect way to keep your spirits up in long lines and busy airports. If you're not traveling at all, but are just looking for an intimate stand up comedy show that you don't have to put make up on for, here's your book.

I rate this book a 5 because it won't let me go any higher.

A fantastically funny read!

Because of your book I don't mind saying that and owning it! Lol
I love the charisma Summer writes with, her vivid details and fantastic punch lines.
I can't wait for her next book, my only advice for improvement is: PLEASE MAKE BOOK 2 LONGER!! I finished book 1 too fast and now I'm sad

By Paul Jongsma 23 Nov 2013 5

It was a very entertaining read and I'm not just saying that because she's my wife.
