Laurie Notaro is my humor memoir IDOL, so it is with intense satisfaction that I get to announce that TNB is running a feature on her this upcoming week. Her new book, Spooky Little Girl, is available in stores and online April 13th. TNB will be smugly running an excerpt from the book on April 12.

Notaro has written several books, fiction and non-fiction, including the NYT bestseller The Idiot Girls Action-Adventure Club. I Love Everybody and Other Atrocious Lies, Thurber Award-nominated The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death, and her newest novel, Spooky Little Girl. Welcome, Laurie!

In her dream world, she fan­cies her­self a kung fu mas­ter clev­erly dis­guised as a gen­tle moun­tain dweller, eagerly antic­i­pat­ing dan­ger at the bot­tom of every latte. When she is not whipping one of her 3 children and denying them bread with their broth, she runs an ISP with her husband from their home in the Colorado Rockies.

    There’s a lot to be said for getting in touch with one’s idols.

    Unless it’s like, I don’t know, Moloch or something.
