    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.

    Story

    If you're already a Sedaris fan, this book will not disappoint you. I find myself thinking about certain stories months after finishing it because they deal with pretty universal issues. Others, I think, "when will I ever reside in the French countryside?" Those stories are still funny, but they have a veneer of white, upper-middle class privilege keeping most of us from relating to stories about how cool he is and how quirky his family.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Story

    I've been a fan of Tina Fey since the second season of 30 Rock. (Maybe that's late; I might live under a rock.) She has great advice for women about career and family, and as always, she made me laugh hard enough to pee my pants at least twice.

    For the three years Shadow spent in prison, all he wanted was to get back to the loving arms of his wife and stay out of trouble for the rest of his life. But days before his release, he learns that his wife has been killed in an accident, and his world becomes a colder place.

    Story

    I'm a fan of Neil Gaiman and science fiction/mythology genres already, so when a friend recommended this book I thought I'd like it. I LOVE the various gods that make up the cast of characters in present day America. The small-town American cities take on a life of their own (Cairo, Illinois was probably my favorite). The short stories about people coming to America that are interspersed in the main narrative definitely add something to the overall concept of the novel. Guidall's reading is memorable as well.
