"Angie Nissel in Jan.'s PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY!!!!"


          

Congratulations to Angela Nissel...Her up and coming book, Broke Diaries was given an excellent review in Publisher's Weekly! The best is yet to come!!!



Publishers Weekly
January 22, 2001
Page 309 (Non-fiction Forecast Section)

The Broke Diaries:
The Completely True and Hilarious Misadventures of a Good Girl Gone Broke.
Angela Nissel
(April)

The Internet has been around long enough as a venue for works like the diary
presented here, which debuted online, for such works to have lost some of
their mystique. Still, Nissel deserves her moment in the sun. As a struggling
college student at the University of Pennsylvania, she decided that to keep
her mind off of her empty stomach, she would keep a journal of her days and
post it on the Net.
The result is a series of biting, funny entries about the evil atmosphere of
check-cashing offices, the horror of being two cents short for the grocery
bill and the joys of making friends who buy dinner.

Her wry thoughts about being flat broke will appeal to readers who enjoyed
Bridget Jones's exploits and similarly sparky works. Nissel is no fictional
Bridget, however, obsessing about weight and cigarettes. She's a city girl
who knows the exact price of Ramen Noodles and the pain of counting pennies.
Although she occasionally recycles material, she rants with aplomb, using
colorful anecdotes (her elderly landlord comes for the rent and ends up
falling asleep on the couch) to pull the reader further into her impoverished
reality. She doesn't delve into the actual fear and pain associated with
poverty, but views her time of hunger with amusement, like a financial
misadventure that she always knew would end. Charming and sharp, Nissel's
diary will be relished by anyone who's ever been a student and remembers
those ramen noodles.

Forecast: With a blurb from Chris Rock, a five-city author tour, stickering
campaigns in several key cities and a low cover price, this paperback
original is poised for success.

I'm all amped, 'cause Pub Weekly is like the INDUSTRY mag for literary ish.

and I just received more good news about my book after I read this review.

And damn, I am so blessed.

And I hope everyone reading this devotes some time to something they *love* and something they believe in. Not tomorrow, dammit. Now.

I am so overjoyed to see that people *get* what I wrote. All I wanna do is see people laugh, and I'm willing to put my own foibles out there to make it happen.

All my sarcasm has been drained. I look like a newly-crowned Miss America on ecstacy, I am smiling like a clown right now.

Love!

(As funny as it sounds to say I made these two clubs, it's actually a big deal. I feel like a big dork though. I'm a Quality Paperback BookClub Selection! Wanna play horseshoes?!!! Doi! Duh! Doh!)

Now, I hope Oprah is reading this thread. That would be cool. I wanna sit in Oprah's chair and talk about food stamps and Turdboys. If I get on, I promise to cry at one point.

"Oprah, when I used to steal from the corner store and kiss boys just to getMcNuggets, I never thought I'd be here in Chicago with you. The closest I thought I'd get to Chicago was this rapper I worked with...what is his name? Thank you, O, thanks for saving me!!!"

And then I'll cry.

No, that would be wack. And I am too single to be even seen with man on my public appearances. Rumors might fly. My goal is to GET DATES (eff marriage. just dates.) not have people thinking I'm hitched.

Ang, let's just say you get all rich and ish.... right?

And I think I have asked this question before, just don't forgot how you answered it.

Would your next book be called "HAHAHAAAAA SUCKAS, YOU BOUGHT MY BOOK AND NOW THE BROKE GIRL IS NO MORE!!!!" ?

By the way, you can use that title if you wish.

good stuff ang-money

-even sounded like the writer mightve been approaching the book with a negative perception to begin with (re: 'for such works to have lost some of their mystique' --- blahhh)
but was won over

-sometimes ish is undeniable

What is the release date of the book?

"If we don't meet no more in this world, I'll meet you in the next one, and don't be late..." Jimi Hendrix

Relentless realism regardless represents
South West goes out, possess the manifest that's heaven sent
What's said is meant to the fullest extent
No nonsense because my conscience wouldn't be content
But just a little wealth, a little fame
But your mind-frame will keep you living the same
And it's a shame that niggas would settle with the ghetto
Huh, hoes have some clothes that ain't makin what you suppose
Let your eyes close to what your contract shows
and fine print, they gotta get back every cent you spent
You content cuz, you do what everybody does
The industry that change you from the person you was
Knee-deep in the struggle
Two part-time jobs to juggle
Gotta lady and a c that you can't hardly feed
Any day your life could end so you depend
on the reciting and the writing when you got the spare time to spend
To keep you stable, hopin one day you'll be able
To be a commodity on somebody's record label
Got your chance, twenty thousand dollar advance
and a car and all of a sudden you a star at the bar
ballin, callin the waiter to bring one of they finest wines
Then you started snortin lines, your life defines
the misconception of stayin down
You can't be influenced by everybody you hang round
You shoulda been more appreciative
of the life that you were blessed to live
A hundred percent is what you got to give
Cos ain't no tellin, yo' bullshit start smellin
And you wonder why your record ain't sellin
no more, endin up with no dough
and no respect back in the projects
and building 23, right next door to me--Cee-Lo, Decisions, Decisions

Or yo, I could sign your book, then you faint and (we gotta make sure you're the first in line) I say "The DEVIL TOLD ME I HAD THE BOOK SIGNING CURSE!!!" and see of everyone else gets out of line!

well, you already know what I'm wanting to say anyway, so I'll lay off of the repetitive tip.

on a side note, a little update on my current standing with mission "nissel". I've got like, 400 of these stickers left for the taking, and those sweet old folks down at my local nursing home have put a restraning order on me (hint, hint...find my name in your e-mail box).

can you believe that? damn them.

"stupidity runs" The Goose


People hold on to religion, like a crutch because they can't make it any other way. With religion you stop being responsible for your own actions and blame someone else like God when it's something you like and the Devil when it's something you don't like.

I see Beatles type stuff, I see movies, I see dropping acid, I see some freaky concept book with a weird title like Freddy Stardust's Southpaw Chicken Fetish that totally revolutionizes the way books are written, I see smashed up hotel rooms and tumultous love affairs and then, like, 40 years from now, there's going to be a huge museum in Philly commemorating the fact that the one and only Angela Nissel grew up here.

Yeah, I'm on her tip, but it's cuz I'm proud.
