Sometimes being a woman sucks. Do you ever feel the pressure to be perfect?
I Just Want to Be Perfect is the fourth book in the New York Times bestselling I Just Want to Pee Alone series.
It brings together 37 hilarious and relatable essays that showcase the foibles of ordinary women trying to be perfect.
The cult of perfection is a thing.
As women, we are constantly inundated with "helpful" and/or "ah-may-zing" tips to improve our looks, please our men, raise the next Einstein (in a wheat-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free environment), and feng shui the crap out of our homes.
Whether it's the hot new diet that involves only eating what you can forage from the floor of your minivan, bleaching everything from your hair to your teeth to your butt hole, or clearing your clutter by mindfully thanking your ratty underwear for its long, dedicated service before you toss them, we've all tried something to be more perfect.
We try to strive for perfection and balance in our lives, and most of us fail--spectacularly.
These are those stories.
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!!

Don't get us wrong, we love the men in our lives – we do (most of the time). It's just that sometimes we would like them to go away. Not forever or anything like that.
Just for an hour … or a day … or a weekend.
We want some time to ourselves to read a good book or take a walk or do anything other than try to make a dent in the never ending mound of dirty clothes that keeps piling up on his side of the bed.
We just want to be alone. All alone. Is that too much to ask?
