Jessie Knadler was a New York City girl, through and through. An editor for a splashy women's magazine, she splurged on Miu Miu, partied hard, lived for Kundalini yoga, and dated a man-boy whose complexion was creamier than her own. Circling the drain both personally and professionally, Jessie definitely wouldn't have described herself as qhappyq; more like caustically content. Then one day, she was assigned a story about an annual rodeo in the badlands of Eastern Montana. There, she met a twenty-five-year-old bull rider named Jake. He voted Republican and read Truck Trader. He listened to Garth Brooks. He owned guns. And Jessie suddenly found herself blindsided by something with which she was painfully unfamiliar: a genuinely lovable disposition. In fact, Jake radiated such optimism and old-school gentlemanliness that Jessie impulsively ditched Manhattan for an authentic existence, and an authentic man. Almost overnight, she was canning and sewing, making jerky, chopping firewood, and raising chickens. And all the while one question was ringing in the back of her head: qWhat the !#*$ have I done with my life?q A hilarious true-life love story, Rurally Screwed reveals what happens to a woman who gives up everything she's ever known and wanted-job security, money, her professional network, access to decent Thai food-to live off the grid with her one true love (and dogs and horses and chickens), and asks, is it worth it? The answer comes amid war, Bible clubs, and moonshine.I pounded my palm against the glass a few times, then dug around in my pocket for change for a hot chocolate. ... and choking on yogurta€”the weight of feigning enthusiasm over earnest story ideas like a€œ10 Reasons Why Funny Women ARE Sexya€ ... I wasna#39;t sure if it was because my mind moved a million clicks faster than my mouth could keep up, or if I had edited one listicle, charticle, gridicle and relationship quiz too many. ... a€œI wouldna#39;t want to be in your shoes, a€ she said cryptically.
