I laugh my ass off at the bottom-feeder personalities and occasional bargain basement morals herein, but some people will wring their hands and cry, "Oh how awful! Notice to Internet Explorer users Server security: Please note Internet Explorer users with versions 9 and 10 now need to enable TLS 1. this is not my favorite of his collections, but i laughed out loud three times, which i think is pretty good. Out of everything he's produced (I've read all of his major work and only missed a few short pieces) this is my favorite David Sedaris book. The neighbors who don't have television, his sister lying in the street to be hit by a car so their mother will unlock the front door, cheating at strip poker, his sister's parrot, and the list goes on.It's the sound my father makes when entering his toolshed, the cry of cowboys as they round up dogies, and it suggests a certain degree of authority. His mother stands in the forefront as a powerful Medea, and almost every line of hers is worthy of quoting. He knew how to plan a meal but displayed a remarkable lack of patience when it came time for the actual cooking.

That was romantic, or would have been had he rushed to my side rather than stepping over my body to fetch the dustpan. This leaves one other area which Sedaris has mined fruitfully in previous books - anecdotes about his family.Prepare yourself for utter hilarity, and once again I highly recommend audio because there really is nothing like listening to Sedaris read his books. He's not very PC and sometimes he says things that are actually pretty offensive, but it helps that he doesn't spare himself when unleashing his cruel wit. His world is alive with obscure desires and hidden motives - a world where forgiveness is automatic and an argument can be the highest form of love.

I especially loved the one about his aspirations to wealth via his obscenely wealthy aunt, and his hilarious house-cleaning escapade that quickly ends up turning sexual (against his expectations). Everything is dangerous all of the time, and if it's not yet been pulled off the shelves, then it's certainly under investigation -- so there. But to keep ourselves on our toes, we have a rule that author gender is alternated, girl-boy-girl-boy, and the continents always rotated (with occasional glitches).I have listened to his books many times over, that is, what I remember of them, as I am lying in bed trying to not think so I can sleep. These short form pieces about his life read like carnival folklore, so seemingly unreal at times it feels surreal. Sedaris came to prominence in 1992 when National Public Radio broadcast his essay "SantaLand Diaries.
