In Autobiography of a Fat Bride, Laurie Notaro tries painfully to make the transition from all-night partyer and bar-stool regular to mortgagee with plumbing problems and no air-conditioning

In Autobiography of a Fat Bride, Laurie Notaro tries painfully to make the transition from all-night partyer and bar-stool regular to mortgagee with plumbing problems and no air-conditioning. Laurie Notaro was born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in Phoenix, Arizona.

The author of the New York Times bestseller The Idiot Girls’ Action-Adventure Club tackles her biggest challenge yet: grown-up life.In Autobiography of a Fat Bride, Laurie Notaro tries painfully to make the transition from all-night partyer and bar-stool regular to mortgagee with plumbing problems and no air-conditioning. Laurie finds grown-up life just as harrowing as her reckless youth, as she meets Mr. Right, moves in, settles down, and crosses the toe-stubbing threshold of matrimony. From her mother's grade-school warning to avoid kids in tie-dyed shirts because their hippie parents spent their food money on drugs and art supplies; to her night-before-the-wedding panic over whether her religion is the one where you step on the glass; to her unfortunate overpreparation for the mandatory drug-screening urine test at work; to her audition as a Playboy centerfold as research for a newspaper story, Autobiography of a Fat Bride has the same zits-and-all candor and outrageous humor that made Idiot Girls an instant cult phenomenon. In Autobiography of a Fat Bride, Laurie contemplates family, home improvement, and the horrible tyrannies of cosmetic saleswomen. She finds that life doesn't necessarily get any easier as you get older. But it does get funnier.

I read a number of reviews before reading this book and the majority of them agreed that Notaro was so funny you would literally laugh out loud, even in a public setting. Some of the stories were amusing, mainly the ones in the first part of the book before she gets married. However, if you're someone who looks to get lost in a book or needs a tiny bit of substance with your humor, skip this writer. What a lot of reviews fail to mention is that the compilation may be funny but some of the stories are so short you wonder if she's trying to just take up space to get to the end. Also, a few of the works seem out of order so you're re-introduced to an event that she mentioned 4 stories ago and it's a bit confusing. Plus, in the name of humor she's a huge fan of being overly wordy in order to force a sentence to be funny which of course makes it not funny. I didn't hate this book, but I didn't necessarily like it either. I found myself reading through the last half of the book quickly, basically just trying to finish it so I could move on to something else.

Started out amazing! In love with the awkward and seemingly unjust situations. Then it seemed as if everything was a level of self absorbed terrible that only suburban teens with iPhones understand. Then I realized it seems to be more of a collection of essays then a real novel. Not terrible but a little after half way through I have lost interest in what I initially drank in. Not a bad writer, just seemed like she wanted to publish a book about herself before thinking of how to line it up.

This was a good book. Not great...but good.

Good because the first half of the book was raw, real and witty. You could tell she put alot of effort into the writing leading up to the wedding and the wedding itself. Her self deprecation and pointed observation of the lunacy that surrounds couples and weddings in general made me laugh out loud.

Not great because after the wedding...the book sort of dies. Yes there are some laugh out loud funny moments...but not nearly as many as the first half. It's like she became tired and decided to "phone in" the last part of the book, from recycled columns or essays previously written. She could have juiced them up just a bit more and this would have been a "Great" book.

Three Stars Out Of Five.

Laurie Notaro's books are chick lit for chubby girls with tattoos, and (according to my own) their Phyllis Diller-loving mothers. She had me chuckling aloud all day long at the beach. AOFB is one of her strongest collections of her perfectly witty tales of everyday things (like taking down the Christmas tree in March, taking her cat to the dentist, babysitting and shopping with her nephew, using her husband's toothbrush to scrape cat crap off her shoe, dealing with her crazed mother) told in a priceless and hilarious style. In this book, she concentrates on meeting, marrying, and living with her husband. A terrific, hysterical, can't-put-it-down, and all-too-realistic book. Grade: A+

This book made me laugh and want more! kudos to Laurie Notaro on nailing the insecurities of women everywhere! I couldn't stop giggling, even when I wasn't reading the book! Such a fun read! To give you an idea how much I liked it, I was halfway through it when I lost my Kindle. I couldn't wait for the new Kindle to get here, so I continued reading it on my computer.

I am (was) a big jen lancaster fan and read several reviews that said if I liked her earlier work, I would like Laurie Notaro. WRONG!

This was a painful read. There were a handful of good stories in there, but most of it was filler. And bad filler at that. A few paragraphs about her tampons clogging the sewer pipes? And this was her first book? People paid her money to write note based on this?

Laurie Notaro always delivers the laughs. I've never read one of her memoirs I didn't love. And unlike some of the idiot negative "reviews" here, I've actually read the book and not just looked at the cover. Ahem, you know who you are! Laurie is snarky, foul-mouthed, and hilarious.
Great tales for a fellow mate of an non-handyman. Found this book when I really needed a laugh and helped me not lose my mind.
