Description

"People who grow up like this tend to become agoraphobics, serial killers, or really funny writers. Mulgrew, I think - hope? - is the last of these three things. His stories of childhood made me laugh out loud." -- Rob McElhenney, star, creator, and producer of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

"The somewhat alarming, always interesting world inside Jason's brain has now been strewn across the pages of a book. Godspeed, reader." -- Steve Hely, author of How I Became a Famous Novelist

Jason Mulgrew's wildly popular blog "Everything Is Wrong With Me: 30, Bipolar and Hungry," gives rise to a memoir of startling insight, comedy, and irreversible, unconscionable stupidity.

Back cover copy

A memoir of startling insight, divine comedy, and irreversible, unconscionable stupidity

Fans of Jason Mulgrew's wildly popular blog know that everything really is wrong with him. The product of a raucous, not-just-semi-but-fully-dysfunctional Philadelphia family, Jason has seen it all--from Little League games of unspeakable horror to citywide parades ending in stab wounds; from hard-partying longshoremen fathers to feathered-hair, no-nonsense, kindhearted mothers; and from conscience-crippling Catholic dogmas to the equally confounding religion of women. With chapter titles like "My Bird: Inadequacy and Redemption" (no, he is not referring to a parakeet) and "On the Relationship Between Genetics and Hustling," Everything Is Wrong with Me proves that, as Jason puts it, "writing is a fantastical exercise in manic depression"--but he never fails to ensure that laughter is part of the routine.

With echoes of Jean Shepherd transplanted to Philly in the eighties and nineties, this book is a must-read for every person who looks back wistfully on his or her childhood and family and wonders, "What were we thinking?"
