Laurie Notaro is married, mortgaged, and now-miraculously-employed in the corporate world, discovering that bosses come in all shapes, sizes, and degrees of mental stability. After maxing out her last good credit card at Banana Republic, she's dressed for success and ready to face the jungle: surviving feral, six-foot-plus Gretchen ("The Three Thousand Faces of Eve") before battling the overbearing, overstuffed (in way-too-small pants) new mom Suzi, who ruthlessly cancels Laurie's newspaper column and learns that payback can be a bitch. Laurie also explores the backstabbing world of preschoolers at a Halloween party, the X-rated madness of a family trip to Disneyland, and the pressure from her QVC-addicted mother and the rest of the world to reproduce. But while losing more friends to babies than to booze, she realizes there's a plus side: for at least a couple of months, she gets to be the thinner friend. I Love Everybody (and Other Atrocious Lies) is Notaro at her deliciously quirky best. Can a woman prone to what her loved ones might term "meltdowns" (she considers them "Opportunities to Enlighten") put a smile on her face and love everybody? Take a guess.

    " Laughed aloud a few times. Funny stories but part of me felt uncomfortable because the author seemed too bitter and angry. It was a fine line but I think she crossed it a few times. "

    " This is so far my favorite Laurie Notaro book. I think the more I read of her the more I like her. I feel like I can relate with her and was truly laughing out loud at many parts I could see myself in. I love her self deprecating, sarcastic, and witty humor. "

About the Author
Author Laurie Notaro

Laurie Notaro was born in Brooklyn, then spent the remainder of her formative years in Phoenix, where she created something of a checkered past. She is the New York Times bestselling author of humorous memoirs, including The Idiot Girls Action Adventure Club and It Looked Different on the Model. She is a terrible typist, doesn’t suffer big Ikes very well, and lives under an assumed name in Eugene, Oregon, where her neighbors believe she is writing about them, but she is not. She has a cute dog, a nice husband, and misses Mexican food like a limb lost to diabetes.
