really liked it
bookshelves: bedside, own, inscribed, collection, anthology
Read in October, 1999 — I own a copy

A couple of gems in here though it's not nearly as stellar as Me Talk Pretty One Day . Still, I keep this one handy for those nights between novels.

In a way, I would describe this as Sedaris' most cynical work. Example: the take-home message of the short story that shares the collection's title. We find out something about ourselves when we bear all, eh? But we'll just as soon retreat to the comfort of our coverings. And those that don't be damned; you don't want to associate yourself with those shameless folks anyway.
