Publisher's Summary

Jonathan Ames has drawn comparisons across the literary spectrum, from David Sedaris to F. Scott Fitzgerald to Woody Allen to P.G. Wodehouse, and his books, as well as his abilities as a performer, have made him a favorite on The Late Show with David Letterman. Whether he's chasing deranged cockroaches around his apartment, kissing a beautiful actress on the set of an avant-garde film, finding himself stuck perilously on top of a fence in Memphis in the middle of the night, or provoking fights with huge German men, Jonathan Ames has an uncanny knack for getting himself into outlandish situations. In his latest collection, I Love You More Than You Know, Ames proves once again his immense talent for turning his own adventures, neuroses, joys, heartaches, and insights into profound and hilarious tales. Alive with love and tenderness for his son, his parents, his great-aunt, and even strangers in bars late at night, in I Love You More Than You Know Ames looks beneath the surface of our world to find the beauty in the perverse, the sweetness in loneliness, and the humor in pain.

Just awful!

From the publisher's summary: "Jonathan Ames has drawn comparisons across the literary spectrum, from David Sedaris to F. Scott Fitzgerald to Woody Allen to P.G. Wodehouse, and his books, as well as his abilities as a performer, have made him a favorite on The Late Show with David Letterman".
What a con job. I have never read anything in Fitzgerald, Wodehouse or Allen about detailed bowel movements and smells or wieners. And as for his "performance"...the author gives no life to his characters...there is no inflection in his reading. It's awful to listen to him. After a 1/2 hour of listening to this grossness, I deleted it from my ipod.

Skip it

I am far from a prude, but after listening to the first two essays, I turned it off - it felt to me like a school child saying naughty words just to get a reaction. Skip this one for sure.

Painful narration, painful book



I really don't understand where this book is trying to go, after 40 minutes I gave up due to just how tedious it was. The general theme seemed to be his own sexual perversion and his disappointment with life.



Few authors choose to narrate their own work, and this is a great example of why most authors shouldn't (there are some books that are great exceptions though!). The narration is droning, sombre, and full of depression. I would have given the book more time to win me over, had it not been for the terrible narration.
