Read in September, 2008

I really like this collection of stories. David Sedaris has quit drinking and smoking, which I thought would be the kiss of death, but the new calmer voice is still entertaining. As I have found with all of his books, some essays have parts that made me laugh out loud or giggle helplessly in public and others left me unmoved. I enjoyed the Helen story and the chance to get to know Hugh better and see how their relationship works. There is something about Sedaris' observations and descriptions that I love, but can't explain why...I would provide examples, but I already returned the book to the library and I can't think because my son is yelling that he needs soup.
