There's not a lot to say about this particular book. If you're a fan of David Sedaris, you know exactly what to expect. This is a continuation of the stories that we've grown to love over the years from him. All I have to say is that this isn't his best effort but is still really good. I guess I just wanted to laugh a little more and there were really only a couple actually laugh out loud parts. Even on his worst day, though, he puts out a hell of a book. For me, I'm not sure he'll ever make another book that can match "Me Talk Pretty One Day" or "Naked" and he'll -never- beat "Holidays on Ice". That book was the first one I discovered and, in my opinion, best book but I'm completely biased and I understand that. If you're looking for something as good as "Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim" or "Barrel Fever
", this book is just your ticket.
Another bias I have is that I think the only way to experience his stories is to have them read aloud by the author himself.
