Like Chelsea Handler, David Sedaris, Dave Barry, and Patton Oswalt, Kelly Oxford - the Canadian native and Los Angeles transplant - has won legions of fans with her comedic skill, down-to-earth voice, and bull's-eye observations on the absurdity of modern life. For example:
"Congratulations, America, I finally get a green card & now I may have to move back to Canada. Trump in the final two for president. Surreal."
"Dear parents of preteen boys, tell them they'll get ED by 18 if they watch Internet porn, then buy them some porno mags. Thank you, Women."
"I'm not going to have a coffee this morning, with the intent of blaming all my screw-ups on the missed coffee."
"1 good piece of news today: 7yo told me there is a secret war going on between muffins and cupcakes & I haven't stopped thinking about it."
Dishing about her kids, her move to America (and what she really thinks about life in LA), her marriage, and how she copes (or not) with anxiety and depression, When You Find out the World Is Against You is Kelly at her honest and most disarmingly funny best. Filled with biting, wise, and laugh-out-loud insights, this vastly entertaining collection of vignettes will make you think as much as it will make you laugh.

In need of therapy
I listen to a lot of audiobooks. A variety of subjects, and especially I love biographies, autobiographies, and nonfiction. I could not make it through this book. In the first chapter you can already tell this poor girl needs therapy. In the second chapter I think this is where it flashes to her being an adult. And you can still hear the crazy in her. Not funny crazy but serious mental illness anxiety crazy. And then when she gets to the part about her daughter in preschool, that was enough. I had to turn it off. Definitely the worst book I ever listen to and I feel sorry for the person the story is about.
