If you like David Sedaris.....
you'll love this one! Typical DS essays about his everyday life (Hah!), his quirky friends, etc., told in his usual dry style, with just a twist of snide.

If you like David Sedaris' other work, this one won't disappoint. He just get's funnier and more relate-able with age. Will read it again.

David Sedaris just gets better with age, like a fine French wine I am sure he can't pronounce! This collection contains my favorite story about spiders, another about creepy presents and of course the tale of quitting smoking in Japan. Only Sedaris would pick a smoker's paradise in which to quit.
Publishers Weekly, 2008-04-28 Starred Review. Sedaris, king of the poignantly absurd, triumphs in this sixth essay collection (after 2004's Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim). There is less focus here on the Sedaris clan as a whole, though the various members make memorable and often hilarious appearances. In The Understudy, the Sedaris siblings band together to battle the odious babysitter Mrs. Peacock, while in Town and Country, Sedaris and sister Amy discuss what their father would be most offended to find on his daughter's coffee-table (hint: The Joy of Sex comes in a distant second). Leaving America behind, Sedaris also regales readers with his experiences around the globe, from sitting in a Parisian doctor's office wearing only his underwear in In the Waiting Room to warding off birds in the French countryside with record albums in Aerial. In the collection's longest essay, The Smoking Section, Sedaris recounts his three-month stay in Tokyo, where he successfully quits smoking and unsuccessfully attempts to learn Japanese. Sedaris records in Buddy, Can You Spare a Tie? his more glaring mistakes in life, but he should be satisfied with the knowledge that this latest endeavor is anything but. (June) Copyright ?
