#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

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.

I think if she has embellished it a bit, it's okay, because it's a story. Stories get like that. However, having been a city girl visiting a small town, I think it is all completely believable.

Finally, someone who appears to be even more stupid than I can be. I wasn’t nearly as entertained by Laurie’s exploits as some, mostly because I have a hard time believing anyone can be that unlucky that often. Either Notaro’s indulged in a wee bit of embellishment (not that there’s anything wrong with that, cuz we’ve all done it) or she completely deserves the title Idiot Girl.

Notaro is yet again in fine form. I think she might be my alter-ego.
