Home No. 5

Hi, I'm Jami Attenberg. I write books, and much, much more. My fourth book, The Middlesteins, came out in 2012. You can order it here or here. My fifth book, Saint Mazie, will be published in June 2015.

Also I like dogs and fighting crime.

This is the fifth place to find me on the internet. Please don't tell me I need a sixth.

Yesterday a woman was standing next to me and she pulled out some body oil from her bag and put some on her wrists and neck and rubbed some into her hands and ran them over her clothes a little bit. It smelled really nice and I asked her what scent it was, and she started giggling and she turned the bottle toward me so I could see it. And it was a fragrance called “BUTT NAKED.” And we both just started cackling on the subway. The end.

The best thing about today’s early morning walk was noticing that all the sunflowers are out in full effect right now. When the streets are crowded I notice less, or I notice differently, anyway. But this morning all I saw were urban gardens everywhere.

Good morning, South Williamsburg.

Happy Friday from this dummy.

The Ferguson kids are going back to school two weeks late this year.

"Even if you can only spare $2, that’s enough to cover a box of crayons, a pair of scissors, or a couple of notebooks."

Let’s buy them a box of crayons.

You guys. BoJack Horseman is airing on Netflix tomorrow. Technically tonight at midnight!?

I’m so proud of this show and all the talented people who helped create it. On the surface it’s a silly comedy with animal puns. Which is wonderful. But, for me, it goes to weirder and weirder…



If you’re looking for a way to do something for the people and community of Ferguson, perhaps write a check to their library. 

The address is to the library, this information is from their director, and they don’t have a way to accept anything other than a check at the moment.

We’ve seen what a sanctuary the library has become.
