Interview with Humor Writer Patricia Marx


Grace Bello has a fantastic interview with Patty Marx on The Hairpin. First, some background:

Patricia Marx was the first woman elected to The Harvard Lampoon, her first paid job was writing for Saturday Night Live, and she currently writes “On and Off the Avenue” and occasional “Shouts & Murmurs” columns for The New Yorker. She also writes books: the satirical How to Regain Your Virginity, the children’s book Dot in Larryland (with illustrations by New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast), and, as of today, the novel Starting From Happy. So we asked her some hard-hitting questions, like who she’s dating, why she doesn’t like shopping, and how to make friends.

Bello, a freelance writer, took Marx’s humor writing class that she’s been teaching at 92Y for years. You can too! Next class starts Oct 27.
