Sponsored by NAL Trade: this debut memoir is a wickedly hysterical must-read: BITTER IS THE NEW BLACK: Confessions of a Condescending, Egomaniacal, Self-centered, Smart-ass, or Why You Should Never Carry a Prada Bag to the Unemployment Office by Jen Lancaster. On sale today in paperback.” Read an excerpt here.

BITTER IS THE NEW BLACK: Confessions of a Condescending, Egomaniacal, Self-centered, Smart-ass, or Why You Should Never Carry a Prada Bag to the Unemployment Office by Jen Lancaster, is a laugh-out-loud chronicle of what happens when a person who’s defined herself by her material possessions suddenly loses her status, her store credit, and her sanity after being laid off from a high profile finance position. But Jen’s an industrious kind of gal who refuses to let coupon-clipping, eviction notices, or her mother’s constant nagging deter her. Armed with a wry sense of humor, an Internet connection, and a knack for always being the center of attention, Jen discovers that even during the most unexpected twists of fate-and most dire of fashion emergencies-that it’s not net worth, but self worth that makes you a success.
