In this phenomenal #1 bestseller, David Sedaris plays in the snow with his sisters. He goes on vacation with his family. He gets a job selling drinks. He attends his brother’s wedding. He mops his sister’s floor. He gives directions to a lost traveler. He eats a hamburger. He has his blood sugar tested. It all sounds so normal, doesn’t it? Yet Sedaris lifts the corner of ordinary life, revealing the absurdity teeming below the surface, exposing a world alive with hidden motives and obscure desires. Performed by the author—with his hilarious, wry delivery—this painful, funny and absurd collection will prove why he’s America’s favorite humorist.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Sedaris’ latest provides more evidence that he is a great humorist, memoirist, and raconteur, and readers are lucky to have the opportunity to know him so well.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“In his latest collection, Sedaris has found his heart…The ţwenty-seven essays here…include his best and funniest writing yet.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Sedaris’ piquant essays are as meticulously honed and precisely timed as the best stand-up comic routines, which is, of course, what they are…He is mesmerizing, and his ability to make the reader gasp, laugh out loud, or grow teary is undiminished. At the same time, there’s an increased edginess to his work, reminding readers that beneath the brio, Sedaris, gifted connoisseur of the absurd, is deadly serious.” Booklist
“Known for his self-deprecating wit and the harmlessly eccentric antics of his family, Sedaris can also pinch until it hurts in this collection of autobiographical vignettes…Sedaris’ sense of life’s absurdity is on full, fine display, as is his emotional body armor. Fortunately, he has plenty of both.” Kirkus Reviews
