I blew through this book in several days because I was addicted to the belly laughs. In fact, I listened to this book while running, which provoked more than a few suspicious glances, as I would occasionally have to stop and grab my knees in spasms of laughter. My favorite parts are when Sedaris reads his material in front of a live audience; he plays up the timing and the voices. Also, the piece about his brother is unbelievable. You really have to hear it (not read it) to get the full effect. Wait for the bit about the "watery coffee," -- you'll see what I mean.

He finds what is funny and what is sad about life right now. He reads the book himself and his delivery doubles the experience as compared to the printed version.
He's got the strangest life and family and I recognize a little of my own life and feelings in his stories.
The best thing I can say about this book is that I laughed until I ruptured something.
If you haven't discovered David Sedaris yet, do yourself a favor and get this book and every other book of his you can get your hands on.
