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 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.

Early this morning I was thinking about how/why I went broke. I made a list.

  • Living beyond my means
  • Having an artistic temperament (bitchy, etc.)
  • A nervous breakdown in winter 2011 that I am only realizing now I actually had and that maybe it lasted for a while and also maybe it rendered me incapable of making wise financial decisions of any sort (This one is just a guess.)
  • Recession
  • Aged out of back-up plan industry (Advertising careers are for the young.)
  • Dinners
  • Drinks
  • That beautiful apartment of mine
  • Being single/No one to split rent with
  • So many freelance projects falling through I just want to cry
  • Wanting more for myself than I actually deserve/am entitled to
  • LIVING BEYOND MY MEANS
  • This country is broken, the rich get richer, the poor stay poor, and the middle class is being destroyed
  • Credit cards
  • Expensive cheese
  • Ha ha ha, I’m a novelist
