Laurie Notaro has an uncanny ability to attract insanity–and leave readers doubled over with laughter. Need proof? Check out The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death and try not to bust a gut.
Join Notaro as she experiences the popular phenomenon of laser hair removal (because at least one of her chins should be stubble-free); bemoans the scourge of the Open Mouth Coughers on America’s airplanes and in similarly congested areas; welcomes the newest ex-con (yay, a sex offender!) to her neighborhood; and watches, against her own better judgment, every Discovery Health Channel special on parasites and tapeworms that has ever aired–resulting in an overwhelming fear that a worm the size of a python will soon come a-knocking on her back door.
With The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death, Notaro proves she’s not only funny but resigned to the fact that you can’t look bad ass in a Prius. Don’t even try.

Red-carpet fashion laureate, comic icon, and outspoken superstar Joan Rivers is uniquely qualified to talk about plastic surgery — because she’s one of the few celebrities unafraid to admit to the world what she’s “had done” to keep looking so great. Now, in this no-holds-barred book, she gives women straight-talking advice on better living through looking better.
Joan Rivers’ abiding life philosophy is simple: in the appearance-centric society of the twenty-first century, beauty is key — especially where men are concerned.
But don’t worry — there’s dish, too. Filled with Rivers’ personal anecdotes about life under the knife, Men Are Stupid…And They Like Big Boobs is also rife with Hollywood gossip about who’s done what and how often. Part comic musing, part bitch-fest, and part hands-on advice, this is a bracingly funny, wildly frank, and genuinely passionate argument for a woman’s right to do whatever it takes to be beautiful, to feel better about herself, and most of all to be happy — not only with who she is, but who she wants to be.

Ensconced in a lovely tropical villa on idyllic Triggerfish Lane, Jim Davenport anticipates the good life to come. But this isn’t living — it’s Florida and the neighborhood is not quite what it seems.

So it’s only a matter of time before Jim up and actually kills somebody …

Three years ago, 32-year-old Markus “Notch” Persson of Stockholm was an unknown and bored computer programmer. Today, he is a multi-millionaire international icon. Minecraft, the “virtual Lego” game Markus crafted in his free time, has become one of the most talked about activities since Tetris. Talked about by tens of millions of people, in fact. It is the story of unlikely success, fast money, and the power of digital technology to rattle an empire. And it is about creation, exclusion, and the feeling of not fitting in.
Here Markus opens up for the first time about his life. About his old Lego-filled desk at school. About the first computer his father brought home one day. But also about growing up in a family marked by drug abuse and conflict. But above all it is the story of the fine line between seeming misfit and creative madman, and the birth of a tech visionary.
Minecraft: The Unlikely Tale of Markus “Notch” Persson and the Game that Changed Everything is a Cinderella story for the Internet age. Buy the book today for $2.99 as it is the B&N price match.
