It's hard not to like this collection of stories. Oh, it's easy not to like David Sedaris--the man is an ass, there's little doubt--but this collection is funny. Amoral, base, and self-centered, but funny. Also, I like reading Sedaris better than hearing him on This American Life because I can hear my own voice instead of his almost unlistenable screech.

I withhold the last star because I felt like there could have been a little more pathos. The stories are sometimes too light for their own good. Still, this book is filed under humor and it delivers far better than most other books you'll find in that section.
