5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 18 libraries worldwide
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

Autobiography of a fat bride true tales of a pretend adulthood by Laurie Notaro( Sound Recording )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
In Autobiography of a Fat Bride, Laurie Notaro tries painfully to make the transition from all-night partyer and bar-stool regular to mortgagee with plumbing problems and no air conditioning. Laurie finds grown-up life just as harrowing as her reckless youth, as she meets Mr. Right, moves in, settles down, and crosses the toe-stubbing threshold of matrimony. From her mother's grade-school warning to avoid kids in tie-died shirts because their hippie parents spent their food money on drugs and art supplies; to her night-before-the-wedding panic over whether her religion is the one where you step on the glass; to her unfortunate overpreparation for the mandatory drug-screening urine test at work; to her audition as a Playboy centerfold as research for a newspaper story, Autobiography of a Fat Bride has the same candor and outrageous humor that made Idiot Girls an instant cult phenomenon.In Autobiography of a Fat Bride, Laurie contemplates family, home improvement, and the horrible tyrannies of cosmetic saleswomen. She finds that life doesn't necessarily get any easier as you get older. But it does get funnier

We thought you would be prettier : true tales of the dorkiest girl alive by Laurie Notaro( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
She thought she'd have more time. Laurie Notaro figured she had at least a few good years left. 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 ("With all of these irresistible offers served up to me on a plate, I WANT A PENIS NOW!!"), eBay ("There should be an eBay wading pool, where you can only bid on Precious Moments figurines and Avon products, that you have to make it through before jumping into the deep end"), and the perils of St. Patrick's Day ("When I'm driving, the last thing 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 true. From the Trade Paperback edition

Von allen guten Geistern verlassen? Lucy hat nach der geplatzten Hochzeit mit ihrem Verlobten Martin wirklich eine Pechsträhne: Sie läuft vor einen Bus - und erwacht im näheren Jenseits. Und zwar in einer Geisterschule, wo unglücklich Verstorbene lernen, was es heisst, etwas spooky zu sein. Wie wird man eine erfolgreiche Seele und erfüllt seine letzte Mission? Lucy gibt sich alle Mühe, ein guter Geist zu sein, denn ansonsten müsste sie die Ewigkeit in ihrem alten Zuhause verbringen. Wo ihr (Ex-)Verlobter offensichtlich bereits nach einem Ersatz für sie sucht. Himmel, was ist eigentlich mit ihrem Leben passiert? Und warum, zum Teufel, scheint sie trotz ihres tragischen Unfalls eigentlich niemand zu vermissen? Ein Himmelfahrtsroman zum Lachen, Weinen und Verlieben! 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.

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
It looked different on the model : epic tales of impending shame and infamy by Laurie Notaro( file )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Everyone's favorite Idiot Girl, Laurie Notaro, is just trying to find the right fit, whether it's in the adorable blouse that looks charming on the mannequin but leaves her in a literal bind or in her neighborhood after she's shamefully exposed at a holiday party by delivering a low-quality rendition of "Jingle Bells." Notaro makes misstep after riotous misstep as she shares tales of marriage and family, including stories about the dog-bark translator that deciphers Notaro's and her husband's own "woofs" a little too accurately, the emails from her mother with "FWD" in the subject line ("which in email code means Forecasting World Destruction"), and the dead-of-night shopping sprees and Devil Dog'devouring monkeyshines of a creature known as "Ambien Laurie." At every turn, Notaro's pluck and irresistible candor set the New York Times bestselling author on a journey that's laugh-out-loud funny and utterly unforgettable. From the Trade Paperback edition
