“Depression Is Fun” Blowganza!*


Update: all 10 copies are now sold or spoken for.

When I recently visited San Francisco, my best friend Ian picked up the last of my boxes stored at the old apartment I once shared with my ex-husband. Riffling through the contents I discovered a treasure-trove of still shrink-wrapped copies of my first book, Depression Is Fun. This has been out-of-print almost since its publication in 1992. But now I have 10 copies here in New York, and they’re on sale for $25 postpaid (and signed, if you want) each. These puppies are going for $30, $50, and – holy crap! – almost $90 online as “collectibles.” As always, my email address is at the bottom of the middle column, the one with the pictures linking to my movies and cartoons and stuff.

  1. Put one aside for me!! I am your biggest fan and not the wimpy kind that always agree with you and eat vegetables, but the kind that is full of wisdom and good advice. Therefore I get one!! Where do I send the check??

  2. I placed my order yesterday.

    Now I get to stare at my PO Box for the the next couple of weeks.

    “Is it there yet?”

  3. I can’t belive I’m just discovering you now, love your work, it’s amazing. Where do I send $ for copy of book?

    your newest fan.
