This was entertaining. Nothing more; nothing less. ( )

I thought this was typical David Sedaris -- not spectacular, but enjoyable for the most part. His autobiographical sections are the best, I think. ( )

From Library Journal: Sedaris has fashioned a funny memoir of his wonderfully offbeat life. To call his family "dysfunctional" would be enormous understatement and beside the point; Sedaris's relatives and other companions become vital characters on the page. We see his mother serving drinks to the string of teachers who want to discuss her son's compulsions to lick light switches and make high-pitched noises. We travel with Sedaris and his quadriplegic hitchhiking companion, listen to his foul-mouthed seat mate on a long bus trip, and accompany the author on a hilariously self-conscious visit to a nudist colony. Sedaris's humor is wickedly irreverent but not mean. Traveling with him is well worth it for the laughs and his generous human sensibility. Highly recommended.Mary Paumier Jones, Rochester P.L., N.Y.
