it was ok
bookshelves: short-stories
Read in January, 2004

David Sedaris calls it "the funniest collection of stories I’ve ever read." David Sedaris is clearly still on drugs, because this short story collection isn’t anywhere near as funny as any of Sedaris’s own works much less near the caliber of the funniest collections. I found the collection too inconsistent in quality, and no story made me laugh out loud, so another lesson not to judge a book by its cover quotes. There are a few very good shorts in here, though, but overall not worth purchasing.
