A guy walks into a bar car and...From here the story could take many turns. When this guy is David Sedaris, the possibilities are endless, but the result is always the same: he will both delight you with twists of humor and intelligence and leave you deeply moved.

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...
