    Story
    (343)

    Marc Maron was a parent-scarred, angst-filled, drug-dabbling, love-starved comedian who dreamed of a simple life: a wife, a home, a sitcom to call his own. But instead he woke up one day to find himself fired from his radio job, surrounded by feral cats, and emotionally and financially annihilated by a divorce from a woman he thought he loved. He tried to heal his broken heart through whatever means he could find - minor-league hoarding, Viagra addiction, accidental racial profiling, cat fancying, flying airplanes with his mind - but nothing seemed to work. It was only when he was stripped down to nothing that he found his way back.

    Amazon Customer says: "Not for everybody"
    "Maron's story is neurotic, self-aware and pure."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Attempting Normal to be better than the print version?

    I do not know.


    What other book might you compare Attempting Normal to and why?

    Howard Stern's Private Parts.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Not one in particular. The narrative is great from start to stop. If you like WTF, then you know Marc is not afraid to bare his soul...and the demons which plague him.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I was compelled to keep going, although I could not due to real life time constraints.


    Any additional comments?

    Totally worth a glimpse into Marc's past, present and what we hope for his future. Plus...nobody tells a story about a person better than the subject!
