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.

Last day of the family vacation.



Crazy thrilled to announce that tomorrow, August 26th — Women’s Equality Day — White House economist Betsey Stevenson will be taking over the blog for a Chartist in Residence Day.

We are handing Betsey that keys to the blog, and she will be discussing the importance of ensuring women earn a fair and equal wage, promoting the women’s economic agenda, and using terms I will have to Google.

Thank you to the awesome team over at the White House for helping bring this together. Tune in tomorrow and learn some stuff from probably the smartest person to ever post on this blog!


Got up at 5 am for a flight, am now on air train having deep sexual fantasies about a cup of coffee, is that wrong.

About to read this for the first time and am VERY excited.

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.
