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.

Gave up on trying to figure out what I’m doing with my life and biked to Red Hook and got a lobster roll instead.

"I’m eating dinner with the man I slept with two years ago, last year, and maybe this year, too. We’re sitting at a weathered picnic table, gorging ourselves on spicy fish tacos and beer. We don’t usually eat out when we see each other because he doesn’t ever have any money."

The assignment was to eat in a restaurant and write a restaurant review that is not a restaurant review. I ended up writing a short story. Read Cafe de la Esquina over at The Morning News.

(It’s really shocking I wrote some fiction involving food, isn’t it.)

Fried green tomato and shrimp remoulade po boy from Crabby Jacks, motherfucker.

Watch my gorgeous friend Kate read from her brilliant memoir, Blue Plate Special, in my loft. (I wish it were always this clean.)
