About the Author
Mara Altman received her M.S. in journalism from Columbia University in 2005. A former staff writer at the Village Voice, she has also written for the New York Times and New York. She lives in Brooklyn.
More About the Author
Over time, Mara has become progressively fearful of airplane flights, but less concerned with getting fat (in the Spring of 2010, she started to eat bacon). She feels most inspired when walking across bridges and lives the perpetual Catch-22 of not being able to go to sleep without first drinking a glass of water, but then having to get up to pee at 3 a.m. She reminds herself that things could always be worse. Then she's stuck thinking about all the bad things that could happen. And then she can't get back to sleep.
Mara has published two best-selling Kindle Singles. Thanks for Coming, her first book, which follows her on an adventure to find her orgasm, was translated into three languages - German, Spanish and Portuguese. The book was also optioned by HBO. Before going freelance, she worked at daily newspapers both in India and Thailand and was a staff writer for the Village Voice. She is currently dabbling in stand-up comedy.

I wish there was a lower rating possible! This book is neither funny nor interesting. It is a blatantly self serving attempt to write a book...any book! Read morePublished 16 months ago by Southern Belle

Amusing romp through author's search for the elusive. Somewhat immature, predicable. Entertaining. Author clearly researched subject and had a wealth of personal experience.Published 22 months ago by Thomas Bower
