Searching for: "Jennie Allen"

  • Jenny Allen

    'One of the funniest writers in America.' That's what The New Yorker's Andy Borowitz calls Jenny Allen-and with good reason.

One moment she's flirting shamelessly-and unsuccessfully-with a younger man at a wedding; the next she's stumbling upon X-rated images on her daughter's computer. She ponders the connection between her ex-husband's questions about the location of their silverware, and the divorce that came a year later. While undergoing...read more

    Do you feel stuck?   So many of us live stuck. Stuck in trying to seem perfect. Stuck in sadness. Stuck feeling numb. Stuck pursuing more stuff to make us happy. Stuck in something we can't even name.

Anything.'

    Never in the history of civilization have we been more connected and felt more alone. We are all so lonely. What if fundamentally the ways we have set up our lives is broken?
