About this title


Whether she’s getting attacked by a squirrel, uncovering the legend of Japan’s golden butt-balls, or being driven to self-harm by Cirque du Soleil, Barbarella bares all in her comical, poignant, and ferociously honest stories.

“Barbarella sees, hears, and analyzes everything. She is like Neo in The Matrix, if Neo were played by Woody Allen,” says David, her husband, or as he refers to himself, Mr. Barbarella.

In this compilation of columns with commentary by both Barbarella and David, Barb demonstrates just how fun “a little fucked up” can be.

"With full hearts and more TMI than a hospital intake form, Barb and David are a funny and lovable duo. To misquote the book, 'the family of a writer is utterly delightful.' I want more!" — Grant Barrett, cohost of the nationally syndicated public radio show, A Way with Words

"A riveting compilation of stories and commentary invites you behind the lipstick and into the audacious world of Barbarella; her family, friends, loves, fetishes, fears, feathers, and afflictions. Each tale is a delicious slice of life, rich with insight, unflinchingly honest and gloriously entertaining. David's take on it all: priceless. Diary of a Diva is dynamite." — Kerry Williamson, Hollywood screenwriter

"Witty, Unique, Insightful, and Funny are only a few of the superlatives that describe ex-paralegal Barabarella (and her sidekick soulmate David). Diary of a Diva is an instant classic." — Linda Kenney Baden, trial attorney played by Helen Mirren in the HBO movie Spector, and author of Remains Silent and Skeleton Justice.

About the Author:

Barbarella Fokos has been writing ever since she could pick up a crayon. She’s been blogging since 2000, and has been writing for the San Diego Reader since 2004. She makes frequent appearances as a guest on radio and television, and has won a regional Emmy Award for a television show she produced and hosted. But more often, she can be found drinking wine, watching videos of raccoons, and trying to convince her friends at the zoo to let her touch all the animals. So far, she’s managed to touch a rhinoceros and a kangaroo. Barbarella lives in San Diego, California with her husband and partner-in- everything, David.
