Read in August, 2007

It seems that David Sedaris sparked something several years back and there was suddenly a new crop of gay male memoirists. I didn't find any of them particularly funny (except for Sedaris himself) and so I approached Rakoff's book with skepticism.

But I loved it! This man is actually funny. He isn't incredibly self-involved (see: Augusten Burroughs). He writes about intesting things (the chapter on the Log Cabin Republicans was especially good).

The book is also an incredibly quick read, good for a lazy Saturday afternoon when you should be cleaning the bathroom but can't seem to find the energy.
