I reread this book for bookclub and thought I give a few of my thoughts.
This book is good, not Sedaris' best, but not his worst. This book starts with short stories and ends with four personal essays. Some of these stories can be found in "Holidays on Ice" so if you have already read this one, some of the stories might be redundant (but some of these are my favorite stories).
I have read this before and picking it up the second or third time I was surprised at how little I remembered these stories. I still found myself chuckling through them, although had trouble recalling them for bookclub.
Bottom Line: Read this for an entertaining read although I am not sure if you'll remember it tomorrow.
