Introducing Laurie Notaro, the leader of the Idiot Girls' Action-Adventure Club. Every day she fearlessly rises from bed to defeat the evil machinations of dolts, dimwits, and creepy boyfriends-and that's before she even puts on a bra. For the past ten years, Notaro has been entertaining Phoenix newspaper readers with her wildly amusing autobiographical exploits and unique life experiences. She writes about a world of hourly-wage jobs that require absolutely no skills, a mother who hands down judgments more forcefully than anyone seated on the Supreme Court, horrific high school reunions, and hangovers that leave her surprised she woke up in the first place. The misadventures of Laurie and her fellow Idiot Girls ("too cool to be in the Smart Group") unfold in a world that everyone will recognize but no one has ever described so hilariously. She delivers the goods: life as we all know it. Download and start listening now!

    " HILARIOUS!! I was reading this at the pool, and laughing outloud so often, someone came up and asked me the title of the book because she wanted to read it. She said if it made her laugh half as much as it made me, it would be the funniest book she'd read in a while. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 5/15/2011

    " Given that much of the activity in this book occurred while the author was drunk, I think I would have found it much funnier if I were drunk while reading it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cheryl | 5/3/2011

    " I gave it about 8 short chapters. Somewhat funny, but I am quickly bored by humor mostly involving getting drunk and acting stupid. It just seemed to be the same things over and over. Guess I should have realized that when she entitled it, Idiot Girls' ..., she wasn't kidding. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debra | 4/1/2011

    " A fast, fun read that was a nice, lighthearted read for the bus ride. Laurie Notaro manages to take those ackward moments in life and show you the humor in them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikki | 3/28/2011

    " This book was incredibly funny and witty. It did not have much substance but it was hilarious and some of the random things that happen to her seem like things that would happen in my own life. If you are looking for a quick, funny, I-don't-need-to-think book this is a good one to check out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mamta | 2/12/2011

    " This was a fun easy book to read. It's a compilation of columns from Laurie Notaro. I definitely laughed out loud at some of them. I recommend if you're looking for something that you can just visit every now and them for a quick couple of pages of reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marjorie | 2/1/2011

    " This book makes me feel like people should be reading my writing. The writing that is in my head and in some e-mails and on my facebook page. I need to get paid for making people laugh. I can see that now.

    She is truly comical in her writing method and I love it. "

    " Hilarious! Reminded me of being 22 when I read the Stupid Drunk's 12 step Drunk Program "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 1/25/2011

    " similar to Chelsea Handler's humor but didn't quite have the punch that Chelsea's does. "

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.
