I didn't expect to be listening to a story about a boy struggling with homosexuality. I appreciate the struggle, but not what I signed up for.
what a funny, quirky family. Sedaris is able to mix melancholy with quirk to form entertaining, sometimes hilarious tales.
the live performances at the end were definitely funnier. I don't know what it is, but David Sedaris reading to a live audience is faaaaar funnier than David Sedaris reading in a studio.
Ce n'est pas grave!
This is a laugh out loud sort of book, which I think is rare. I would recommend it to anyone, especially if they are new to the work of David Sedaris.
I loved listening to this on summer vacation. I laughed out loud and laughed till I cried at some of these stories, and Sedaris is the master reader of his own material.
It took a while for the story to grab me, and for the first 6 or 7 chapters I found myself wondering why I was still going through this. (I figured,

Every family has its own set of eccentricities, and Sedaris allow us into his family's world. You may see some of your own family eccentricities in these stories and either enjoy a large belly laugh or cringe in horror!
This was the worst book i have ever heard. There wasn't anything funny about it. Now I see why society is going down the drain if this is suppose to be funny. I gave it one star because it was the lowest I could give it. It doesn't even deserve that.
