Overview

A humorous take on a serious issue, Diary of a Harry Potter Addict captures the struggles of an anonymous Harry Potter fan coming to grips with life post-Harry Potter. Part diary, part clinical narrative, the book spans several years in the character's life, from the moment they first pick up Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone through their exploration of ways in which to manage - and eventually make the most of - their chronic Harry Potter addiction.

Utilizing diary entries, original artwork and interviews with members of the International Quidditch Association and the Harry Potter Alliance, the book offers alternative ways to ease the pain of saying good-bye to old friends and goes great with a swig of Butterbeer.

"An essential part of any respectable Harry Potter collection... A national treasure." -Antiques Roadshow

"Not good. BRILLIANT!" -Rupert Grint (as Ron Weasley)

"A very interesting literary approach to the subject of Harry Potter Series End Disorder (HPSED)... These women are dangerous." -Dr. Juana Fuchenstein, DFA

"I laughed... I found it a loving tribute to the fanbase and the running dialogue is great. I need to mention that the cover is awesome!" -Josh Guerrero, ETS

Meet the Author

Darby Romeo and Kerin Morataya are accomplished players in the pop-culture world. Darby created the landmark punk/music/culture magazine Ben Is Dead and has contributed to Vanity Fair, The Village Voice Literary Supplement, and Los Angeles Times; she also edited Lollapalooza's tour magazine. Overwhelmed with her success (ahem!), she sold her worldly possessions and ran away to an island. Today she spends her days catching waves, opening coconut husks with her teeth (with the help of her dog) and running the popular wahine surf/culture/eco site Coconut Girl Wireless. If someone calls her Wilkie she will respond.

Kerin has contributed articles to Vanity Fair, Raygun, Playboy, Elle and was a major force behind Ben Is Dead. After doing time in the music industry, she moved to Chicago and became an art director at a couple of trade publications you've probably never heard of. She now resides in LA, works on a variety of collaborative creative projects (with the help of her cat) and hopes to one day become a contestant on Cash Cab. Oh and she once got stoned with 2-Pac. Admit it, you're jealous.

Together, Darby and Kerin created the I Hate Brenda Newsletter and founded the band Rump. Whether or not they were intoxicated at the time is pure speculation. They've appeared on everything from CNN to The People's Court. Little Brown published an offshoot book from editions of Ben Is Dead entitled Retro Hell: Life in the '70s and '80s from Afros to Zotz. While both zines are defunct, The UCLA Arts Library has permanently installed The Darby Romeo Collection of Zines, housing a selection of some of the best publications from the '80-'90s underground 'zine movement. Today, Kerin and Darby are not-so-anonymous Harry Potter addicts, coming to terms with life after Hogwarts.
