No secret, I'm in love with David Sedaris.

And this is my FAVORITE book by him. Not quite as well known as "Dress Your Family..." and "Me Talk Pretty One Day" (or even "Naked"), I still believe this is Sedaris' best work.

Sedaris has a way of telling a story. I have no doubt these instances happened to him, but I can only imagine he uses his artistic license to make the stories even more hilarious and witty. Particularly the stories about growing up and his family - I would pay to be a fly on the wall in the Sedaris household.

If you know me, and you know (and appreciate) my sense of humor, you will enjoy this book too. Short, quick read, definitely the first step in the Sedaris addiction!
