bookshelves: hilarity, dtb-own
Read in January, 2003

i stumbled across a beat-up copy of this one at a used bookstore, and bought it off of the recommendation of a classmate with a rather sarcastic sense of humor. the book was probably beat up from its former owner dropping it all the time after laughing too hard to keep a hold of it. arranged in a series of vignettes that can be read in any order (though there are several in-jokes that become apparent as you read, this one can certainly be devoured in sporadic little short-story-sized bites), it takes a little while to get used to Sedaris' style of humor. utterly self-deprecating and weirdly quirky, once you get in to it, these tales induce the sort of laughter that make other people stare at the crazy chick cackling like a drug fiend. good times.
