Publisher's Summary

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 that's before she even puts on a bra.

For the past 10 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 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.

    "Poor to Mediocre"

    Some of Notaro's book is funny, but I found her comments about her neighbour children and their mother spoiled this narrative for me. These comments seem strangely incongruent in the broader context of this narrative. On the one hand, the writer aims to present herself as flawed (a lot of her humour is directed at herself); on the other hand, she seems to moralize when discussing this family, without seeming to give any consideration to the sorts of socio-economic circumstances that make it difficult for some people to have what many would perceive as the perfect nuclear family. The comments she makes about the two little girls and their mother are irritating and didactic.
