Since cracking open the spine of David Sedaris’ Naked, I have had a newfound love for the art of the essay. A friend loaned me this copy, with the advice, “Just wait till you get to the Zack Morris part!” Despite my temptation, I did read the essays in consecutive order. And overall, this is a funny collection - yes, the Zack Morris essay was definitely my favorite, but I also enjoyed the large section of hypothetical questions. The book is definitely heavy on MTV’s Real World references, which didn’t interest me as much as Saved By The Bell. I found the collection to be a bit uneven, with some essays definitely stealing the limelight more than others - like the one on the “serial killer connections”! It will be interesting to see what other topics Klostermann will tackle.
