About the Author
LAURA LIPPMAN is the award-winning writer of more than twenty crime-fiction novels. She is the editor of Baltimore Noir and the author of Liza Jane & the Dragon, which is her debut children's picture book.
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
