The New York Times bestselling craft guide that inspired the hit new TV show, At Home With Amy Sedaris

It's often been said that ugly people craft and attractive people have sex. In SIMPLE TIMES, Amy Sedaris sets the record straight and delivers a book that will forever change the world of crafting. Demonstrating that crafting is one of life's more pleasurable and constructive leisure activities, Sedaris shows that anyone with a couple of hours to kill and access to pipe cleaners can join the elite society of crafters.

You will discover how to make popular crafts such as Pompom Ringworms and Seashell Toilet Seat Covers, all while avoiding the most common crafting accidents (sawdust fires, feather asphyxia, pine cone lodged in throat). You will cook your own edible crafts, from a Crafty Candle Salad to Sugar Skulls, with many more recipes and craft ideas that will inspire you to create your very own hastily constructed obscure d'arts.

Praise for Simple Times
"Amy Sedaris is a kookier, kitschier version of Martha Stewart...Simple Times is an ideal gift for the crafter who has crafted everything." - Associated Press

"A wildly cheeky guide." - InStyle

"For anyone who's ever collected hats crocheted together...or simply for fans of Amy Sedaris and her idiosyncratic sense of humor." - New York Times Book Review

About the Author:

Amy Sedaris has appeared in several movies and television shows, and, with Paul Dinello and Stephen Colbert, is a co-author of the novel Wigfield. She also co-wrote Strangers with Candy, the hit show on Comedy Central. She lives in Manhattan.

From AudioFile:

Amy Sedaris's new book will have you in stitches--and not just of the cross-stitch variety. In her genuinely hilarious look at crafts and crafty folk, Sedaris presents a rib-tickling assortment of nutty, sometimes- naughty suggestions to brighten our lives in tough economic times. In a hyper-enthusiastic performance, Sedaris tackles the materials you'll need for crafting, offering some truly unique ideas for crafts--such as "bottle-cap castanets" and "decorative fly strips"--and some hazards faced by novice crafters--such as feather asphyxia and sawdust fires. The audiobook offers a bonus PDF file featuring recipes, how-to's, and photos of some finished products, including "shut-in shuffle slippers" and a "milk carton skid row." Sedaris's wildly wacky crafts and gift of side-splitting laughter are a perfect combination for lifting those economic doldrums. S.J.H.
