This was an early reviewer copy that was delivered courtesy of LibraryThing. I requested it on a bit of a whim, mainly because it seemed mildly amusing, and I liked the cover (I know, I know). So I was very pleasantly surprised when I got around to reading the slim volume. The only bad thing about this book is, in fact, its brevity. It is merely a sampler, but it is a sample of some fresh, witty, intelligent, self-aware writing that hits all the right notes. Steve Almond is on par with David Sedaris and David Rakoff in my mind, and I will definitely track down some of his other books. He relates these painful stories with wit and insight. In short it was just damn funny.
