A 2020 Audie Award Finalist
From YouTube star and Facebook Video sensation Laura Clery comes a collection of comedic essays in the vein of We Are Never Meeting in Real Life by Samantha Irby and You’ll Grow Out of It by Jessi Klein.
Laura Clery makes a living by sharing inappropriate comedy sketches with millions of strangers on the Internet. She writes songs about her anatomy, talks trash about her one-eyed rescue pug, and sexually harasses her husband, Stephen. And it pays the bills!
Now, in her first-ever book, Laura recounts how she went from being a dangerously impulsive, broke, unemployable, suicidal, cocaine-addicted narcissist, crippled by fear and hopping from one toxic romance to the next…to a more-happy-than-not, somewhat rational, meditating, vegan yogi with good credit, a great marriage, a fantastic career, and four unfortunate-looking rescue animals. Still, above all, Laura remains an amazingly talented, adorable, and vulnerable, self-described…Idiot.
With her signature brand of offbeat, no-holds-barred humor, Idiot introduces you to a wildly original—and undeniably relatable—new voice.

Best Book Ever
This book gave me a lot of insight and inspiration and even helped me repair things in my life. This book has been the only other good thing about 2020 besides me getting engaged! I dated guys that did drugs and even pressured me into things that I would have never done and your book truly even helped me get closure and over that chapter in my life. And has given me insight into how my first fiancé might have felt and he died from heroin/ fentanyl mix that not only caused his epilepsy to go into over drive and have a seizure on Asphalt which between that and the drugs it causes his brain to swell and his mom found him unresponsive and it took emts an hour to stabilize him for the drive and he coded many times that night and one other on the 3rd day I held his hand one last time and kissed his cheek one last time and told him I loved him and not too much longer he started to code and his mother said it’s time to let go and go with God and he did
Having Laura reading was just an amazing plus to this book. Thank you for being so open and true! Hearing your journey and the strength that carried you through was so inspiring. 10/10!!
