"Coming home from a Hawaiian vacation with her best girlfriends, Lucy Fisher is stunned to find everything she owns tossed out on her front lawn, the locks changed, and her fianc??s phone disconnected?plus she?s just lost her job. With her world spinning wildly out of her control, Lucy decides to make a new start and moves upstate to live with her sister and nephew. But then things take an even more dramatic turn: A fatal encounter with public transportation lands Lucy not in the hereafter but in the nearly hereafter. She?s back in school, learning the parameters of spooking and how to become a successful spirit in order to complete a ghostly assignment. If Lucy succeeds, she?s guaranteed a spot in the next level of the afterlife?but until then, she?s stuck as a ghost in the last place she would ever want to be. Trying to avoid being trapped on earth for all eternity, Lucy crosses the line between life and death and back again when she returns home. Navigating the perilous channels of the paranormal, she?s determined to find out why her life crumbled and why, despite her ghastly death, no one seems to have noticed she?s gone. But urgency on the spectral plane?in the departed person of her feisty grandmother, who is risking both their eternal lives?requires attention, and Lucy realizes that you get only one chance to be spectacular in death"--Page 4 of cover

We thought you would be prettier : true tales of the dorkiest girl alive by Laurie Notaro( Sound Recording )
7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 24 libraries worldwide
She thought she'd have more time. Laurie Notaro figured she had at least a few good years yet. But no-it's happened. She has officially lost her marbles. From the kid at the pet-food store checkout line whose coif is so bizarre it makes her seethe "I'm going to kick his hair's ass" to the hapless Sears customer service rep on the receiving end of her Campaign of Terror, no one is safe from Laurie's wrath. Her cranky side seems to have eaten the rest of her-inner-thigh Chub Rub and all. And the results are breathtaking. Her riffs on e-mail spam, eBay ("There should be an eBay wading pool, where you only get to bid on Precious Moments figurines and Avon products, and you have to make it through that first before jumping into the deep end"), and the perils of St. Patrick's Day ("When I'm driving, the last think I need is a herd of inebriates darting in and out of traffic like loaded chickens") are the stuff of legend. And for Laurie, it's all 100 percent true

Vorlaut ist auch nicht leise Roman by Laurie Notaro( Book )
4 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in German and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Eigentlich dachte Laurie, sie hätte noch etwas Zeit. Noch ein paar gute Jahre. Aber nein, jetzt ist es passiert. Sie hat ganz offiziell den Verstand verloren. Und eine ganze Generation übersprungen: Sie ist Mitte dreißig und alt. Und sie wird wie ihre Mutter. Dabei wollte sie nur vernünftig sein. Leise. Nicht immer dazwischenquatschen, nicht immer ungeduldig sein. Doch ihre schrullige Seite hat endgültig gewonnen. Niemand ist jetzt mehr sicher vor Lauries unbändiger Wut: weder der junge Mann aus dem Tierfutterladen, der Laurie mit seiner hippen Frisur in tiefe Depressionen stürzt, noch die V
Alle Jahre nie mehr wieder by Laurie Notaro( Book )
3 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in German and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Es ist die schönste und zugleich schrecklichste Zeit des Jahres, wenn der Genuss von Lebkuchen und Dominosteinen direkt zu Umfangszuwächsen an den Oberschenkeln führt ... Alle Jahre wieder weihnachtet es sehr! Doch alle guten Vorsätze, was man dieses Jahr zum Fest unbedingt anders, besser, früher oder überhaupt nicht mehr machen will, lassen sich - der Familie zuliebe - mal wieder nicht umsetzen
Weg da, das ist mein Fettnäpfchen by Laurie Notaro( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Sich mit den neuen Nachbarn anfreunden? Sehr schwierig, wenn man das ausgeprägte Talent besitzt, von Fettnäpfchen zu Fettnäpfchen zu springen. Und unschlagbar komisch, wenn man darüber hinaus noch Laurie Notaro heisst. Aber das ist auch kein Wunder, wenn man in eine Stadt zieht, in der Frauen beim Picknick den BH lupfen, unflexible Postbeamtinnen Hausverbot erteilen, kleine Mädchen über vegane Ernährung philosophieren, und keiner - wirklich keiner - Sinn für Lauries einzigartigen Humor hat! Laurie Notaro wurde in Brooklyn, N.Y., geboren und lebt heute in Eugene, Oregon. Neben dem Roman Spooky Little Girl - Verliebt in einen Geist schreibt sie witzige Kolumnenbücher, u.a. Anleitung zum Zickigsein, Männer und andere Dickmacher und Weg da, das ist mein Fettnäpfchen. Derzeit arbeitet sie an einem Plan B, sollte sie keinen neuen Buchvertrag bekommen. Zur Wahl stehen so aufregende Alternativen wie Hotdog-Verkäuferin oder Baustellenschildhalterin. Nach heutigem Stand ist Laurie Notaro immer noch verheiratet, ihre Katze erfreut sich bester Gesundheit und ihr Hund Maeby wird in diesem Leben nicht mehr auf sie hören
Guten Morgen, Doppelkinn [Roman] by Laurie Notaro( Book )
5 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in German and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Hauptbeschreibung Wenn du bei der Laserhaarentfernung plötzlich feststellst, dass du - anders als bisher angenommen - nicht nur ein Doppel-, sondern ein Dreifach-Kinn hast, auf dem sich - für eine Frau - unerhört viele Haare tummeln, dann kann dir das schon mal den Tag vermiesen. Genauso wie fremde Schamhaare unter dem Hotelbett oder Menschen, die dich mit offenem Mund anhusten. Auch Laurie kennt und hasst solche Situationen - und löst sie auf ihre ganz eigene Weise ... 18 knackige Lebensweisheiten ober- und unterhalb der Gürtellinie
Housebroken : admissions of an untidy life by Laurie Notaro( file )
2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
#1 New York Times bestselling author Laurie Notaro isn't exactly a domestic goddess-unless that means she fully embraces her genetic hoarding predisposition, sneaks peeks at her husband's daily journal, or has made a list of the people she wants on her Apocalypse Survival team (her husband's not on it). Notaro chronicles her chronic misfortune in the domestic arts, including cooking, cleaning, and putting on Spanx while sweaty (which should technically qualify as an Olympic sport). Housebroken is a rollicking new collection of essays showcasing her irreverent wit and inability to feel shame from defying nature in the quest to make her own Twinkies, to begging her new neighbors not to become urban livestock keepers, to teaching her eight-year-old nephew about hoboes
