did not like it

I recently read 'Dress your family in Denim and Corduroy" and it was much better than this book. I began to really question the embellishment level of some of the essays in this book.

I think if David Sedaris were the SEXIEST MAN ALIVE he still would not get as many sexual advances as he describes getting during the course of this book. His hitchhiking stories are filled with variations of absolute crazies trying to kill or make love to him while he jumps from the car and hides in the bushes, narrowly escaping. Might that happen to a person once in a lifetime? Sure. Five times in two years? Nope.

The essays about his Mother's death were touching and real, but the rest of this book was a flop for me.
