BC2012: People Are Unappealing by Sara Barron

This is one of those books I never would have discovered if not for the Borders bankruptcy. Since the biography/memoir section was discounted more than most other sections, I bought a lot of books there. By the final days (after shopping at more than a dozen Borders stores), it seemed like I knew nearly every title in that section, and I had purchased many of them. For that reason, I find it hard to remember which book I bought where. Such is the case with People Are Unappealing.

This book is laugh-out-loud hilarious (seriously -- I was giggling like a schoolgirl). Having a cover blurb from Sloane Crosley is perfect because Barron reminds me of her (except IIRC Crosley is cleaner). I would venture to guess this is the only book ever written with FUPA* as a recurring theme. I love the title, too.

* FUPA stands for Fat Upper Pussy Area.
