#1 New York Times bestselling author Laurie Notaro isn't exactly a domestic goddess—unless that means she fully embraces her genetic hoarding predisposition, sneaks peeks at her husband's daily journal, or has made a list of the people she wants on her Apocalypse Survival team (her husband's not on it). Notaro chronicles her chronic misfortune in the domestic arts, including cooking, cleaning, and putting on Spanx while sweaty (which should technically qualify as an Olympic sport). Housebroken is a rollicking new collection of essays showcasing her irreverent wit and inability to feel shame. From defying nature in the quest to make her own Twinkies, to begging her new neighbors not to become urban livestock keepers, to teaching her eight-year-old nephew about hoboes, Notaro recounts her best efforts—and hilarious failures—in keeping a household inches away from being condemned. After all, home wasn't built in a day.

Praise for Laurie Notaro

"Notaro is a scream, the freak-magnet of a girlfriend you can't wait to meet for a drink to hear her latest story."The Plain Dealer

"If Laurie Notaro's books don't inspire pants-wetting fits of laughter, then please consult your physician, because, clearly, your funny bone is broken."—Jen Lancaster, author of I Regret Nothing

"Hilarious, fabulously improper, and completely relatable, Notaro is the queen of funny."—Celia Rivenbark, author of Rude Bitches Make Me Tired
"Notaro is direct and self-deprecating, and her disastrous attempts to sew a dress and make jerky treats for her dog are relatable and funny."Library Journal

From the Trade Paperback edition.
