About the Author

Jim Mullen lived in New York's Greenwich Village for twenty years before moving to a farm in the Catskill Mountains. His fictionalized memoir of the experience, "It Takes a Village Idiot: Complicating the Simple Life" was a finalist for the 2001 Thurber Prize for American Humor. It got rave reviews from the Washington Post, the Nashville Tennessean, the Virginian Pilot, CNN, the Cleveland Pain Dealer and the Baltimore Sun. The Rocky Mountain News named it one of their "Best Books of the Year." His spoof of a baby shower gift book, "Baby's First Tattoo" is now in its fifteenth printing. "Most baby books have places where you fill in the blanks for things like 'Baby's First Tooth' and 'Baby's First Haircut.' Mullen's has spaces for things like 'Baby's First Ritalin Prescription' and 'Baby's First Lawyer.' It's a totally different take on child-rearing." For thirteen years, Mr. Mullen wrote a column in Entertainment Weekly magazine where he regularly made fun of self-centered celebrities and their enablers. His freelance work has appeared in the New York Times, New York Magazine, the Village Voice, and many other magazines. Since 2002 he has been writing a weekly newspaper column for United Features Syndicate called "The Village Idiot."
