This is quite possibly the funniest book I have ever read. If you are feeling down and you think nothing can perk you up, try reading Naked, and I promise, you'll be laughing within minutes.
I liked it; it's hard to believe that someone with as much lack of direction, and who has had so many near misses with disaster has manged to create as much of a career as Sedaris has.
I thought his bio would be funnier -- that's what the back cover copy would have you believe -- but while there are certainly many funny moments, there's a lot of nail biting, too. It doesn't make the book bad, but it didn't hit my expectations, either. So I'm left with an odd feeling about it.
This review sounds lukewarm --- but the book is actually quite good. It's just not crazy funny like I thought it would be.
Sedaris is hilarious, but you probably already knew that. His life and family make for a great read.
I got so many crazy looks when I would read this book at work on my lunch break. I laughed out loud and everyone thought I was crazy!
This book is ridiculously funny. Smart and funny is a combination I love in a book.
David Sedaris's stories about his family and growing up. His visit to the nudist camp is hilarious.
