Agorafabulous! Dispatches From My Bedroom
Out now from William Morrow/HarperCollins
Order my book on Amazon , Barnes and Noble, Powells, you adorable scamps. I highly recommend buying it at your local independent bookstore. Then also buy some coffee there, and maybe an oversize ginger cookie baked by some hippie the shop owner smooches on occasion.
Here’s more info from the publisher:
From a “freaking hilarious" (Newsweek.com) comedian comes this funny, raw, and poignant account of her battle with agorophobia—how a terrified young woman literally trapped by her own imagination evolved into a (relatively) high-functioning professional smartass.

"A blisteringly funny yet affecting debut memoir...Fabulously quirky and outrageous."
"Funny and unflinchingly honest."
“Agorafabulous! is laugh-out loud funny, even as it’s taking on deadly serious issues.”
"You'll be amazed at how much fun it can be to read about such difficult circumstances."
“Sara’s story of overcoming a debilitating fear is told with such honesty and hilarity that all I want to do now is hang out with her in a tiny room and not let her leave until she tells me more stories.”
—SARAH COLONNA, author of Life as I Blow It
“If I ever get thrown in a mental institution, my only hope would be having Sara as a cellmate. Her funny and poignant perspective makes Agorafabulous! a stellar debut.”
—JULIE KLAM, author of You Had Me at Woof
“Sara’s comedy is uplifting, deeply personal, and very funny. As difficult as her agoraphobia is to manage, she’s pulled through it beautifully. Agorafabulous! manages to make you laugh even as she’s peeing into cereal bowls and hiding them under her bed.”
—ROB DELANEY, comedian and columnist, Vice Magazine
“With storytelling that is hilarious, honest, raw, and absurd, Agorafabulous! puts you in the body and mind of an extraordinary individual who accepts and embraces her full self.”
—BARATUNDE THURSTON, author of How to Be Black
“Sara is pee-your-pants, makes-you-happy-to-be-alive funny. As a performer and as a writer, her exuberant, ridiculously likable voice makes you realize time and time again you are not actually alone in this big bad world. Because, hallelujah, a self-deprecating, whip-smart, rising-above-her-own-challenges provocateur genius like her really does exist.”
—MANDY STADTMILLER, entertainment writer, New York Post
“Sara’s blunt and quirkily humorous take on the crippling anxiety that held her hostage in her own home will have you laughing out loud one minute and wanting to hug her the next.”
—KAMBRI CREWS, author of Burn Down the Ground: A Memoir
“Sara teaches us a profound life lesson in Agorafabulous!--that a sense of humor about and forgiveness for our own unique slice of insanity are essential in our quest to figure out who we’re meant to be."
—KELLY CARLIN, podcast host, “Waking from the American Dream”
