A new collection of essays from the #1 New York Times bestselling author who has been called "the preeminent humorist of his generation" (Entertainment Weekly). From the unique perspective of David Sedaris comes a new book of essays taking his readers on a bizarre and stimulating world tour. From the perils of French dentistry to the eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, from the squat-style toilets of Beijing to the particular wilderness of a North Carolina Costco, we learn about the absurdity and delight of a curious traveler's experiences. Whether railing against the habits of litterers in the English countryside or marveling over a disembodied human arm in a taxidermist's shop, Sedaris takes us on side-splitting adventures that are not to be forgotten.

I don't know why it took me so long to read this author's book. I take that back, I read a book he co-wrote about the men his mother dated before she got married but that book was okay. Some parts were "snort" funny but nothing that made me crack up laughing.This book made me crack up laughing - I l...
True story my sister's appendix decided that it really didn't want to be in her body anymore and she was really upset because this coincided with David Sedaris being in our town to promote this book. I really didn't quite get why she was so upset with this, but now that I've read this book I totall...
