    From the unique perspective of David Sedaris comes a new collection of essays taking his listeners on a bizarre and stimulating world tour. From the perils of French dentistry to the eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, from the squat-style toilets of Beijing to the particular wilderness of a North Carolina Costco, we learn about the absurdity and delight of a curious traveler's experiences.

    Other reviewers complain that it's not as fresh as his older works, but its good moments are great. The dog poetry would do Ogden Nash proud. Even the production credits at the end had me laughing out loud.

    Edgewood - which is not found on any map - is many houses, all put inside each other or across each other. It’s filled with and surrounded by mystery and enchantment; the further in you go, the bigger it gets. Smoky Barnable, who has fallen in love with Daily Alice Drinkwater, travels from the City on foot to Edgewood, her family home. There he finds himself on the magical border of an otherworld.

    The author's narration is very calm and understated, but it suits the story well. Unfortunately a second narrator introduces each chapter in an annoying and thoroughly inappropriate sultry woman's voice.

    The story itself is fairly complicated, and keeping track of the many characters would have been easier with the help of the genealogical chart which supposedly comes with the print version. Given the number of subplots explored, I was very surprised that by the end of the book, what seems to be the central plot is actually never explained to the reader; we only glimpse it indirectly. Still, for a book about an otherworldly subject, I suppose it only makes sense that we don't get all the answers, and the journey was very enjoyable.
