By the actress, writer, and one of the funniest women on
Twitter, an outrageous, hysterical memoir of acting on
impulse, plotting elaborate hoaxes, and refusing to
acknowledge boundaries in any form
Jenny Mollen is an actress and writer living in Los Angeles.
She is also a wife, married to a famous guy (which is
annoying only because he gets free shit and she doesn't).
She doesn't want much from life. Just to be loved—by
everybody: her parents, her dogs, her ex-boyfriends, her
ex-boyfriends' dogs, her husband, her husband's
ex-girlfriends, her husband's ex-girlfriend's new
boyfriends, etc. Some people might call that impulse crazy,
but isn't "crazy" really just a word boring people use to

In these pages, you'll find stories of Jenny at her most
genuine, whether it's stalking her therapist (because he
knows everything about her so shouldn't she get to know
everything about him?); throwing a bachelorette party so bad
that one of the guests is suspected dead; or answering the
eternal question, Would your best friend blow your
husband on a car ride to dinner if she didn't know you were
hiding in the backseat?
I Like You Just the Way I Am is about not
doing the right thing—about indulging your inner
crazy-person. It is Jenny when she's not trying to impress
anyone or come across as a responsible, level-headed member
of society. With any luck it will make you better
acquainted with who you really are and what
you really want. Which, let's be honest, is most
likely someone else's email password.
