If you've already read one of Sedaris's works and loved it, then I'd recommend following it up with this one. In my opinion, it's not quite as funny as Me Talk Pretty One Day, but it still made me laugh occasionally with its moments of absurdity. I'm drawn to these types of comedic books because I really enjoy the format: short little episodes that draw you in for a moment and provide a laugh, but cover a variety of moments throughout a lifetime. For me, that's what keeps it interesting, but I will say that Sedaris's humor is certainly not for everyone. His readers must be comfortable with frank talk about topics that are taboo in normal conversations. I'd recommend this for fans of Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and for those who are seeking a quick, light read.
