A plug on The Tonight Show!

Did you see it? Lisa Kudrow plugged my book on Jay Leno last night!

She told Jay this adorable story about reading the audio book, saying it was the most challenging thing she ever did. (JAY: "Reading a book was the most challenging thing you ever did?") I was in shock so it's hard for me to remember precisely, but a friend tells me she used the words "funny" and "brilliant." Can anyone verify that?

She also mentioned we're cousins. If that comes as a surprise to anyone, it's because I've been shy about mentioning it. But it's true.

How cool is Lisa Kudrow? SHE MENTIONED MY BOOK ON THE TONIGHT SHOW!

EDITED TO ADD:
D'oh! I can't believe I missed the opportunity to put in a link for ordering the audiobook! There are like six versions of it, but the most popular one--the unabridged audio CD--is buried on Amazon and you really have to dig around for it. (I don't get this. Why do they list the abridged version and the very expensive unabridged library version, but not the one most people want?)
Anyway, here a link to the unabridged CD version.
Here's a link to the MP3 version.
It's also available on cassette.

Of course, the audiobook is available at your local bookstore as well as other online booksellers.

That's incredible, Ellen! And what perfect timing. I hear that wipes out toaster pain way better than Tylenol.

Anyway, congrats, you deserve it.

She did say "brilliant"...I still can't believe how long she talked about it...but oh my god, did I die a million deaths when it appeared she was going to forget the name of the book? Seriously, she talked about your book more than the DVD she was supposed to plug.

Ellen, this is so amazing and it couldn't happen to a more deserving person. You rock!
