I'm a big fan of David Sedaris (and his hilarious sister Amy too), but when this came out I was puzzled. I didn't know what to make of it. So I dismissed it, thinking aaw, he's run out of ideas, now he's changing course, and he's looking for a quick income fix.
Shame on me.
This is hilarious. Classic Sedaris really. These are what Gary Larson cartoons would be if they were translated into written stories. Lots of laugh out loud bits, and "hey Martha!" stories as one reviewer called them, because you want to share them with someone nearby. And that's what I was doing.
