“Ive 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.”
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 creepy boyfriends—and thats before she even puts on a bra.
For the past ten years, Notaro has been entertaining Phoenix newspaper readers with her wildly amusing autobiographical exploits and unique life experiences. She writes about a world of hourly-wage jobs that require absolutely no skills, a mother who hands down judgments more forcefully than anyone seated on the Supreme Court, horrific high school reunions, and hangovers that leave her surprised that she woke up in the first place.
The misadventures of Laurie and her fellow Idiot Girls (“too cool to be in the Smart Group”) unfold in a world that everyone will recognize but no one has ever described so hilariously. She delivers the goods: life as we all know it.
"[A] bitingly funny memoir..." Bust
"This is a great, funny read that women will love." Kathy Ingels, Library Journal
The Idiot Girls' Action Adventure Club
is a bitingly funny memoir of a 20-something woman and her band of friends as they stumble through sticky hangovers, evil boyfriends, the temptation of carbohydrates, and supermodel neighbors.
Hangovers. Bad boyfriends. Sucky jobs. Carbohydrate addiction. Dead bodies. Naked women. The truly spectacular, wondrous, and marvelously genius works of humor columnist Laurie Notaro will tickle you with fanciful delight, make you search your soul with profound reflection, and hopefully make you pee in your pants. If it doesn't, you can sell it to a used bookstore. But probably not.
