Author Laurie Notaro embraces midlife mayhem in new book, ‘Excuse Me While I Disappear’

Humorist and writer Laurie Notaro has never been shy about sharing, even the most personal details of her life. That’s what made her a best-selling author and popular interviewee.

Now, Notaro has reached the stage of life — her mid-50s — when she has become even more inclined to double down on honesty about what it’s like to age, to let her hair go gray and to feel invisible to the rest of the world.

The Show's Steve Goldstein spoke with Notaro about aging, which she covers in her own inimitable style in her new book, “Excuse Me While I Disappear: Tales of Midlife Mayhem.”

The conversation began with Notaro explaining what her thoughts were about getting older, even before she started writing the book.

Notaro will be  at Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe on Nov. 19.
