“It’s helpful to see that a voice as original, hilarious and sometimes as infuriating as his was put through the same Struggle and Starve meat grinder that most of us go through.” Patton Oswalt, New York Times Book Review
“Sedaris’ observations about the ordinary, the random and the minutiae make for laugh-out-loud entertainment.” Sydney Morning Herald
