Editor's Choice:
"“If you love to laugh, don’t miss this book. Laurie Notaro is a columnist for Phoenix’s Arizona Republic and here she has collected a selection of some of her most sidesplitting stories. A hilarious and entertaining look at a modern woman’s life, The Idiot Girls’ Action Adventure Club is a tresure. However, do be warned if you are reading it in on a plane or bus--any of the stories that involve Laurie’s mother will make you laugh out loud.”


Introducing Laurie Notaro, the leader of the Idiot Girls' Action Adventure Club. Every day she fearlessly rises from bed to defeat the evil machinations of dolts, dimwits, and boobs -- and that's before she even puts on a bra.

For the past ten years, Notaro has been entertaining Phoenix newspaper readers with her wildly amusing autobiographical misadventures and "unique" life experiences. Her caustic and self-deprecating sense of humor make her at once both hilarious and universally appealing.

"I've changed a bit since high school. Back then I said 'no' to using and selling drugs. I washed on a normal basis and still had good credit."

Laurie's day-to-day exploits with her mother, Nana, friends and on-again, off-again boyfriends are edgy, witty, and sometimes even sweet.

Idiot Girls covers everything from bad boyfriends to lame jobs to embarrassing doctors visits to high school reunions with a healthy dose of rancor and irony. Chapters include:
-- The Useless Black Bra and the Stinkin' Drunk Twelve-Step Program,
-- How I Can Relive the Horror of High School for $103, and
-- It Smells Like Doody Here.

With biting wit, Laurie Notaro has delivered a riotous collection filled with unexpected humor and sarcasm. In other words, she delivers the goods: life as we all know it.
