Baker & Taylor
On her thirty-sixth birthday, a Los Angeles high school art teacher reflects on her life and love affairs in a series of addresses written to herself on seven consecutive birthdays.

Blackwell North Amer
It's her thirty-sixth birthday, and she really thought things would be different this year - that she'd have figured out men and how to get along with her narcissistic parents enough to survive a birthday celebration. But nothing's changed. Her disappointing day is capped off by the delivery of a huge bouquet of flowers from Carl, with whom she has recently, and bitterly, split. A gesture of reconciliation? Of passive aggression? She's too unhinged to tell.
It's My F---ing Birthday unfolds in seven state-of-my-life addresses this hapless high school art teacher writes to herself on consecutive birthdays, as she is determined to break the patterns of behavior that are keeping her down. Her objective: to avoid making the same mistakes over and over and start making some new ones. Through seven outrageously funny years of needling parents, self-absorbed boyfriends, riots, O.J., and Monica - and bigger and bigger bouquets from Carl - she navigates a circuitous (and ultimately successful) route to happiness in a world where everything seems to conspire to the contrary.

This was a funny book. I found my mind wandering at some points, but it was a fast and easy read.
