Very funny... David Sedaris' books are basically about about himself and his slightly warped view of the world. They'll make you giggle and knowingly shake your head the whole time you are reading. My favorite essay in this book has to be the first one in which he is relaying his experiences in speech therapy with "Agent Samson," as he calls his therapist, to correct his "s" sound. I was laughing out loud at his descriptions of avoiding using "s" at all costs... to the point of saying about how he'll spend his New Year's Eve... "On the final day of the year we take down the pine tree in our living room and eat marine life." *giggle*
