Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
The best-selling author of Me Talk Pretty One Day and Naked presents a collection of essays in his signature droll style that explores such topics as an effort to make coffee while the water is shut off, an annoying fellow passenger on a plane journey, and a smoking-cessation trip to Tokyo. Reprint.

Review:
"Older, wiser, smarter and meaner, Sedaris...defies the odds once again by delivering an intelligent take on the banalities of an absurd life....Just when Sedaris seems to have disappeared down the rabbit hole of ironic introspection, he delivers a cracking blow of insight that leaves you reeling." (starred review)

Book Description: Little, Brown Company, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 208 x 137 mm. Brand New Book. David Sedaris s ability to transform the mortification of everyday life into wildly entertaining art, ( The Christian Science Monitor ) is elevated to wilder and more entertaining heights than ever in this remarkable new book.Trying to make coffee when the water is shut off, David considers using the water in a vase of flowers and his chain of associations takes him from the French countryside to a hilariously uncomfortable memory of buying drugs in a mobile home in rural North Carolina. In essay after essay, Sedaris proceeds from bizarre conundrums of daily life-having a lozenge fall from your mouth into the lap of a fellow passenger on a plane or armoring the windows with LP covers to protect the house from neurotic songbirds-to the most deeply resonant human truths. Culminating in a brilliant account of his venture to Tokyo in order to quit smoking, David Sedaris s sixth essay collection is a new masterpiece of comic writing from a writer worth treasuring ( Seattle Times ).
