Miss Fortune

Lauren Weidman’s Miss Fortune is a chronicle of her life as a modern woman – having it all. I could only marvel at her resignation in recounting a humiliating threesome with co-workers in the Netherlands and later her husband’s affair with their babysitter.

I plodded – rather than plowed – through this book, wondering if all the abuse this woman willingly endures at the hands of others is what made her an award winning comedic actress.  She chronicles her life in a series of incidents, including maltreatment at the hands of her adopted mother, sister, co-workers, lovers, friends and finally her husband.

The title is apt. This is indeed a tale of Misfortune. Alas I didn’t see much hope or resolution.
