About the Author

Since Laura Lippman's debut in 1997, she has been recognized as a distinctive voice in mystery fiction and named one of the essential crime writers of the last 100 years. Her books have won most of the major awards in her field and been translated into more than twenty languages. She lives in Baltimore and New Orleans with her daughter.

Reviews

Candid and quirky, this book will have special appeal to fans of her crime fiction. A wryly observed collection from a reliably good writer.--Kirkus Reviews
The essays, some new, some previously published, are overall a delight...Fans of Lippman's novels (The Lady in the Lake) and her Twitter followers will gobble up this short collection and beg for more nonfiction from this gifted storyteller.--Library Journal
She revels in confession and connection, surprise and provocation, and she performs all with panache, wisdom, wit, and courage. Lippman asserts: "I'm a tough old bird," and readers will declare: and one helluva true-tale teller.--Booklist
With its 'gleefully honest' hits of humor and willingness to take a close look at some discomfiting truths, it will come as no surprise to Lippman's fans that My Life as a Villainess is an engaging read--an intrepid investigation of the author's inner landscape...--BookPage
...compelling and clever self-interrogation.--Los Angeles Times
Lippman's revelations about herself and her life are refreshingly candid and imbued with a seriously robust overtone of humor, a double-barreled approach that dovetails nicely with Lippman's self-description of being 'gleefully honest.'--Boston Globe
