“A lot of times women’s stories are automatically tagged as chick lit. But if you read the same kind of story about a man, it would be heralded as literature. There’s not really men’s fiction or dude lit.” – Laura Hankin
Laura Hankin has written for McSweeney’s and HuffPost, among other publications. The viral videos that she creates and stars in with her comedy duo, Feminarchy, have been featured in Now This, The New York Times, and Funny or Die. She grew up in Washington, D.C., attended Princeton University, and now lives in New York City, where she has performed off-Broadway, acted onscreen, and sung to far too many babies. Happy and You Know It is her first book.
