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.

I loved her face.

You really cannot go wrong with (1) cute and (2) green.

What you need to understand is that when I left the house I was wearing a gorgeous sparkly jacket, which my landlord loaned to me. And there was an amazing story behind it, that it had been stolen from their flooded home post-Katrina, only to surface again in the front window of one of their favorite vintage stores in town. And it was an honor to wear it, it truly was. But the sun was hot and I was drunk and I ended up spending most of the day just tramping it up in a slip dress, the coat resting nicely to the side.

Also, apparently, I hugged a gigantic man.

Guess I’m a ghost.

New Orleans is a goddamn candy store.
