Feeling a little anxious with the recent lockdown from COVID-19? Rik and Patti caught with New York Times best-selling author Jen Lancaster on their morning show. Jen has a brand new book out that helps navigate some of that anxiety and stress from being in lockdown.

Who is Jen Lancaster you ask?

Jen Lancaster is the New York Times bestselling author of the novels Here I Go Again and The Gatekeepers; the nonfiction works Bitter Is the New Black, The Tao of Martha, Such a Pretty Fat, and Bright Lights, Big Ass; and the memoirs Stories I’d Tell in Bars, Generation X, My Fair Lazy, Pretty in Plaid, and I Regret Nothing, which was named an Amazon Best Book of the Year.

Regularly a finalist in the Goodreads Choice Awards, Jen has sold well over a million books documenting her attempts to shape up, grow up, and have it all—sometimes with disastrous results.

She’s also been seen on the Today show, as well as CBS This Morning, Fox News, and NPR’s All Things Considered, among others.

She lives in the Chicago suburbs with her husband and her many ill-behaved pets.

Her new book is a sharp and witty piece of observational comedy, WELCOME TO THE UNITED STATES OF ANXIETY.

The book is a departure from Lancaster’s usual light fare, steeped in research and addressing issues that affect millions of Americans, but it’s not without her blunt, relatable humor that fans have come to know and love.

Rik and Patti talk about this fun read and asks Lancaster how she's coping with COVID-19 with a little slice of humor on the side.

The new book is available now and you can check out more details on the book and Jen Lancaster here.
