"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 fiancé'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

I love everybody (and other atrocious lies) true tales of a loudmouth girl by Laurie Notaro( Sound Recording )
5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 19 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( file )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 5 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

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

Genauso wie fremde Schamhaare unter dem Hotelbett oder Menschen, die dich mit offenem Mund anhusten.
