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.

This baby brought us breakfast tacos today.

We did a little off-roading last night up to the old cottage and it was super spooky and awesome.

Pretty much totally felt like I was in a slasher movie the entire time.

"But anyway the part that was probably the most compelling to me (out many compelling, heartfelt moments) was near the end when they started talking about what they went through to create The Pale King from the papers DFW had left behind. (I’m sure this has been written about before in a million places and I was just hearing about it for the first time.) And how they went back and forth when they were putting the book together, trying to imagine what he would have wanted, remembering how his mind worked, keeping him in the conversation, the same conversation they had been having with him for decades.”
