"It's Hazel's 30th birthday and she has everything she's ever wanted: a kickass job at a video-game company, a dream New York City apartment, and the perfect boyfriend - who also happens to be a personal chef, and has just proposed in the most romantic way. With good food, video games and love, Hazel thinks she's happy -- but not ready to get married. So when her most far-fetched fantasy suddenly enters the realm of the possible, shouldn't she drop everything to see it through? The morning after her birthday, Hazel leaves for a business trip and receives a surprise upgrade to first class, boards the plane, and sees the person in seat 3B: it's her celebrity crush, rock star Finn Schiller. Just the night before, she had confessed her infatuation with Finn at her birthday party, and her boyfriend joked that she had a free pass if she ever met him. Hazel can't believe fate has actually thrown them together. Even more unbelievable is the flight that follows, as they genuinely connect - even after he sees her vomit due to plane turbulence. Finn likes her uncensored cursing, wicked sense of humor, and that she's not like all his groupies; Hazel likes his killer looks, ripped physique and soulful music. But what started as a fantasy quickly becomes a real attraction and after a dream date and taste of the rock-star life with Finn in Los Angeles, Hazel is forced to examine the track her life is on. Indulging in a passionate affair with a rock star seems crazy - but could she ever forgive herself if she walked away from her wildest dreams coming true? Seasoning with her signature wit and hilarious dialogue, Jill Kargman presents a fairytale romance with a twist"--Provided by publisher

Sprinkle glitter on my grave : observations, rants, and other uplifting thoughts about life by Jill Kargman( file )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
The star of Bravo's breakout scripted comedy Odd Mom Out shares her razor-sharp wit and backhanded wisdom in a deeply observed and outrageously funny collection of musings, lists, essays, and outrages. From her unique lingo (things don't simply frighten her, they "M. Night Shyamalan her out") to her gimlet-eyed view of narrow-mindedness, to her morbid but curiously life-affirming parenting style, Jill Kargman is nothing if not original. In this hilarious new book, the sharp-elbowed mother of three turns her unconventional lens on life and death and everything in between, including the politically correct peer pressure she felt from the new moms in her hood, the women who provided the grist for the mill of her hit television showthe evolution of her aesthetic from Miami Vice vibrant (a very brief flirtation) to Wednesday Addams-meets-rocker chicher deep-seated New Yorker's discomfort with moving vehicles that aren't taxis and subways (a.k.a. "suburban panic disorder")the family obsession with reading obituaries for their medical revelations and real estate news valuethe reasons why, in a land of tan-orexic baby-oil beach bakers, she chooses to honor the valor of her ghostly pallor From a hellish visit to the Happiest Place on Earth to her unusual wedding night with Russell Crowe to her adrenaline-pumping Gay Pride parade experience, Sprinkle Glitter on My Grave is as wonderfully indecent and entertaining as a spring break road trip with your best friend. Assuming your best friend is the kind of gal who still wears a motorcycle jacket to pick up the kids at school.Advance praise for Sprinkle Glitter on My Grave "The creator of Bravo's Odd Mom Out, Kargman dishes out a variety of essays that poke fun at herself, her family, friends, and the world in general. . . . Prepare to laugh."--Kirkus Reviews"A comedic, lively take on [Kargman's] life as an opinionated, Jewish native New Yorker . . . sharp and funny . . . Those looking for a new, fun voice that doesn't get too heavy will enjoy Kargman's perspective, which is rich with gratitude, laughs, and a healthy appreciation for the color black."--Publisher's WeeklyPraise for Jill Kargman's Sometimes I Feel Like a Nut "Please welcome the new David Sedaris, not that the old one is broken or anything. It's just that Jill Kargman . . . provides the same gut-splitting reading pleasure."--Los Angeles Times "Edgy, addictive, and relatable."--The Daily Beast "A smart, pocket-sized delight that artfully engages the funny bone."--Kirkus Reviews "With her sense of irony and humor, Ms. Kargman laughs at moments others might cry over. . . . Sometimes I Feel Like a Nut is more than funny, more than insightful and more than a guilty read."--New York Journal of Books Praise for Odd Mom Out "The smartest piece of anthropology on cable--and something to make TV fans grateful that something so specific and deeply thought-through can exist in the shallow end of cable's pool."--Time From the Hardcover edition
