Craig made a couple of cameo appearances in the last book I read, so I wanted to leave a review that I liked this book a lot back when I read it.

Recommends it for: Readers who enjoy easy humor.
Very funny writer with similarities to David Sedaris and Augusten burroughs. A good read if you enjoy the self-effacing type.
