A Goldmine

I found this book a delightful read. My favorite part- and it's not easy to choose, was the hilariously informative section on how to be a good guest. Make no mistake, the content is not just great satire, but an actual handbook on how to give a successful party. The included pdf files of the recipes mentioned are the icing on the cake.

Ms. Sedaris gives useful tips I have never heard or seen anywhere else. Her narration is top notch and a treat in itself. I can't wait for her next effort!

This is the book you will give for the Holidays.

I listened to this book on a long flight to Hawaii. Amy's strangeness and humor is a precious gift to a world that takes itself too seriously.
