About the Author:

Amy Sedaris has appeared in several movies and television shows, and, with Paul Dinello and Stephen Colbert, a co-author of the novel Wigfield, and she co-wrote Strangers with Candy, the hit show on Comedy Central. She's also a regular on The Late Show with David Letterman. She lives in Manhattan with her imaginary boyfriend, Ricky, and her rabbit, Dusty.

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
