About the Author

Kim Korson is a writer, originally from Montreal, Canada. Kim now lives in Southern Vermont with her husband and two kids. She doesn't get out much.


Kim Korson must be stopped. My wife thinks she's funnier than me.--Jon Stewart
I Don't Have a Happy Place is the book you'll beg your friends to read--for its pitch-perfect humor, scintillating wit, and refreshing depiction of life in all its extraordinary, and ordinary, absurdity. Kim Korson is certainly a new and exciting voice in nonfiction, unafraid to shout out loud the things you and I may only dare to think. I haven't laughed like this since David Sedaris.--Julia Fierro "author of Cutting Teeth"
I love this book. It's like 95 percent cacao chocolate - bitter but delicious.--A.J. Jacobs "New York Times bestselling author of The Year of Living Biblically"
In the razor-sharp, acerbic I Don't Have A Happy Place, Kim Korson-- think: Jewish, female, Canadian David Sedaris-- recounts her adventures as a true malcontent.--Miranda Beverly-Whittemore "New York Times bestselling author of Bittersweet"
Makeup-wearing dads, squirrel attacks, death, Phil Donahue, - there's something for everybody in Kim Korson's great new book. And if not having a happy place is what it takes to make writing so hilarious, smart, and honest, I selfishly hope Kim remains miserable within reason for many years to come.--Dave Hill "author of Tasteful Nudes"
Korson's preoccupations--checking crime blotters for neighborhood stats, being certain that her first child would come out crazy, avoiding chitchat at parties--may keep her firmly in her cranky cave but will strike a funny bone in readers.-- "Publishers Weekly"
