Publisher's Summary

Comedian, writer, blogger, radio and podcast host, and YouTube sensation, Sara Benincasa bravely and outrageously brings us "Dispatches From My Bedroom" with Agorafabulous! One of the funniest and most poignant books ever written about a mental illness, Agorafabulous! is a hilarious, raw, and unforgettable account of how a terrified young woman, literally trapped by her own imagination, evolved into a (relatively) high-functioning professional smartass. Down to earth and seriously funny, Benincasa's no-holds-barred revelations offer listeners the politically incorrect hilarity they heartily crave, yet is so often missing from your typical, weepy, and redemptive personal memoir.


What the Critics Say

"Sara Benincasa is one of the funniest writers I know - and I know a disturbing number of them. She is also one of the most honest." (Sam Apple, author of American Parent and editor-in-chief of The Faster Times)
"Sara is extremely funny and should have many books out so we can all read them and laugh." (Margaret Cho)

More Fun than a Good Cry in a Bathroom Stall

Sara Benincasa addresses anxiety and depression; suicide and run-of-the-mill high school antipathy from a perspective that lets you know— not that everything will be ok, but that you can cry and laugh at once at the same thing.

Agorafabulous! began as a one woman show. What Sara brings to this audiobook is the skills to enthrall an audience. She can tell a yarn about standing in line for two hours in order to donate blood, and you are ready to hear more. She's spontaneous, genuine, and awkward when it suits.

- Susie "I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South.""

A bit ... coarse, but I liked it

I had not heard of the author until I stumbled across this book. First two-thirds centering on her breakdown, and recovery, easily held my interest; last part was more a straight memoir that, while well written, seemed more like a coast to the finish. Didn't bother me much, but if you're opposed to crude language, don't get this one!
