I honestly write these reviews in a spirit of sharing and helpfulness. I have no idea why I always end up sounding so snotty...

    Once again, David Sedaris brings together a collection of essays so uproariously funny and profoundly moving that his legions of fans will fall for him all over again. He tests the limits of love when Hugh lances a boil from his backside, and pushes the boundaries of laziness when, finding the water shut off in his house in Normandy, he looks to the water in a vase of fresh cut flowers to fill the coffee machine.

    Overall

    A new book is always a little scary to the author's fans. You've so been looking forward to it and it would just be terribly sad if it stank.


    I'm happy to report that there is no stank on this book at all. If anything, I think his writing has gained in depth without losing a fraction of its wit.

    And those who believe authors should not read their own work are right about just about everyone except David Sedaris. There's a reason people line up to see him.

    I just wish there was more Paul in this book. The brother appears in a perfectly crystalized cameo that just makes you ache for more.

    It is otherwise wonderful. Add to cart immediatement.
