Publisher's Summary

America's most delightfully unconventional hostess and the best-selling author of I Like You delivers a new book that will forever change the world of crafting. According to Amy Sedaris, it's often been said that ugly people craft and attractive people have sex. In her new book, Simple Times, she sets the record straight. Demonstrating that crafting is one of life's more pleasurable and constructive leisure activities, Sedaris shows that anyone with a couple of hours to kill and access to pipe cleaners can join the elite society of crafters.


What the Critics Say

"Those looking to make conventional crafts, obviously, should look elsewhere. Everyone else should sit down, have a laugh, and make your very own bean-and-leaf James Brown mosaic. The author and her brother have a considerable following among hip readers of humor, and the appeal of this book will certainly transcend the world of crafters." (Booklist)

A few laughs

The audiobook is well produced with music, and two narrators including Amy Sedaris. It was a fun listen, and comes with a PDF showing the hideous crafts. This is a fun spoof. It is a bit short though, less than 3 hours.

I have the hardbound copy as well and it's wonderful.
