This is yet another book of short stories by the humorist David Sedaris, and I have to say it is one of my favorites since I have read all of them. But I have reread this one at least 3 times.      This collection offers more stories about the author's family than his other books, including his sarcastic parents, who I absolutely love.

David Sedaris is a very funny writer and this is one of his better collections. I highly recommend it. Though my favorite among his books is still the gut-splitting "Me Talk Pretty One Day", this collection comes fairly close to matching it.
