It's one of David Sedaris' best books. It reminds me of his earlier work, like Me Talk Pretty One Day. Funny, touching and well presented.
The Dog Poems are hilarious, and the first story is a lovely combination of his fine humor and his love for a twist in the story line.
Yes, and it's up there with his best.
The story of the author's (sometimes self-serving) friendship with a psychopath and killer is truly fascinating. It's well paced and keeps the listener's interest.
The psychopathy of the book's subject, and the self-reflective relationship of the author to the subject.
The premise of "being in the zone" (interesting enough) is diluted with endless Taoist stories. I gave it an hour, and when there was no science to be found, I moved on. A real disappointment.
The concept is simple - the author simply padded it out ad nauseam.
