Autobiagraphy of a Fat Bride (True Tales of a Pretend Adulthood)

Laurie Notaro is an Italian girl who grew up in Phoenix Arizona. This book is her second book, and came highly recommended to me by a friend of my Fiance. We are currently re-reading this book aloud to each other, and not a single chapter has gone by where we did not find ourselves laughing. This book is fast and easy read, and is exceptionally funny.
Laurie basically covers the years of her life as she met the man she would mary, moves into their first house, and how life around them is never what it was supposed to be. Add her very neurotic tendency to be very hard on herself, and finds it really hard to understand why the man she married ever fell in love with her (she assumes pity), and you get one hilarious scenario after another that unfolds like it were the perfect comedy movie. From planning a wedding, to having to call a plumber to take of a backed up toilet, this woman really has a great story to tell about her family and her life.
I would recommend this book to:
Anyone who has ever dated
