I loved the first essay, "SantaLand Diaries"! It will have you laughing out loud the whole way through. A few of the other stories fell flat for me, but overall a fun read.

Another book club pick, and well we were pretty split on it. Two of us listened to the audiobook and enjoyed it less than people who read the book. The audiobook just seemed a bit too slow, and not quite as funny. But apparently if you read this book it is great! My favourite story was definitely when Sedaris is a Christmas elf - I would be interested to know if this is actually a true story, or if it is fabricated. It is hard to tell because it is in his own voice, but other stories in this collection are so clearly not true, that I wonder about this one.

This book isn't very funny. It IS supposed to be funny isn't it? Much better cover photo than Barrel Fever, however.

Sometimes I embarrass myself at how much David Sedaris makes me laugh! No exception here.
