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-died 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 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.




AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A FAT BRIDE, my second Laurie Notaro audiobook, didn't disappoint! This time we get a more... err... Intimate look-see into LNotaro's love life from dating losers, an STD scare, to her eventual happily ever after. LNotaro poked fun and tried to make light out of meeting and being with the love of her life, their love story is truly sweet and gooey!

Per usual, the anecdotes are a hoot from holidays with the in-laws, babies, and wedding planning to buying a house and living next to crazy neighbors. My favorite stories are the ones that include Mrs. Notaro, the woman is the breakaway star here and can rival Laurie's shine. Domestic life can be blissful as long as you have a sense of humor about its mishaps and bumps. At least that's my takeaway from this.

Compared to Idiot Girl's, AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A FAT BRIDE I think is written for women (and some men like maybe those who are married or in LTR?). There's a lot of "inside jokes" that some people may be unable to relate to especially if you're a single dude. That said, LNotaro's dry sense of humor and sarcasm amused me to no end. Watch out for my next LNotaro adventure...

    1. Yeah it's very entertaining. I usually struggle with audiobooks in that I still need to focus similar to when holding a book. Not with this one, I multi=tasked without a hitch and still didn't miss a second of it. hahaha I'm so limited!
