Window Shopping for God ( publisher Douglas&McIntyre) is a poignant, laugh-out-loud funny page-turner that will have you laughing one minute and bring you to tears the next. A delightful read by Canada’s comedic icon, Deborah Kimmett.

“This is not a self-help book but it contains so much wisdom–Reads more like a David Sedaris book with well-muscled essays that lead one into each other. I couldn’t put it down. After I finished it I was on the back deck. I looked up the sky and let out a big sigh of gratitude.”

Jarrod Clegg, actor, a Podcaster at Humanism Canada.

Kimmett is on tour across Canada and will be stopping at Novel Idea Bookstore, Kingston, July 24th,from 7 pm-8:30 pm.

It will start with a reading, some great stories and a conversation.

Enjoy a treat, grab a signed copy of her book and have some laughs as she reads from the best chapters.

Deb’s oldest friend and ultra-talented local actor Len Whalen will join her and there will be laughter.

Please RSVP–no obligation but it’s just for Novel Idea to have an idea of how many books to order.


This is some nice company to keep.


“Window Shopping for God is a mesmerizing book of unflinching honesty, poignancy and yes, the trademark Kimmett hilarity. Addiction, birth, death, Catholics, Buddhists, witches, therapists, family, friends, this book has it all. Please read about Deborah’s search for a belief system, the meaning of life and good scones. You won’t be sorry.” –Colin Mochrie, star of Whose Line is it Anyway?

“A hilarious, poignant and moving memoir from a very funny lady. Window Shopping for God is a must-read for anyone who has ever found themselves searching for meaning, only to discover it hiding in plain sight. I couldn’t put it down, and I laughed so hard I cried. This is one of those books that will make people ask, “What ARE you reading???” I highly recommend this book.”

–Colette Baron-Reid, author, educator and artist

“Window Shopping for God is a fun page-turner of a book. An irreverent, poignant, utterly readable and sometimes hysterical look at the dark, disturbing but mostly hilarious moments in Deborah Kimmett’s life.” –Mary Walsh, comedian
