The Fifteenth Book I've Read This Year.



Books Does this count as a single book given that it's about the length of a New Yorker article and it has "an essay" written on the cover? Well, since Amazon are selling it as a single entity, yes. Since Sedaris's work is often best heard than read, I bought the audiobook, in which the author narrates the piece in less than half an hour.

The tone is rather like one of his older This American Life contributions. He talks about his signing tours and how various themes often develop which leads to a very funny passage in which he finds himself having to search a town in order to hand a random stranger $50 (honestly this makes sense within context).
The results are hilarious. Would recommend.
