Take a cue from entertaining expert Amy Sedaris and host an unforgettable fete that will have your guests raving.

Amy Sedaris is the co-developer of two separate series for Comedy Central: Exit 57and Comedy Central's first live action series, Strangers with Candy.She is one half of the "Talent Family" -- the other half is David Sedaris -- and together they have collaborated on eight plays, including the Obie Award-winning One Woman Shoe.From AudioFile:
Aw shucks, Amy Sedaris, we like you too. Here is yet another charming, albeit slight, book by the comedian/author (sister of David Sedaris), who has cooked up a very funny book that, in some strange way, actually sometimes gives good advice on entertaining guests. Of course, a person would have to be as quirky as Amy to take the book seriously. After all, she doesn't really lay out trinkets to sell to her guests whenever she throws a bash, right? Then again...Sedaris reads her own work, which is only logical since no one else could do it justice. With her slight Southern twang, she delivers a breezy, witty winner. And includes a whole bunch of recipes. What more could you ask for? M.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
