I heard a large part of the book when I went to a reading at Symphony Hall last fall, and most of the rest of the book I had already read as New Yorker essays. I was thinking about what I liked best about David Sedaris last night. I think it is the fact that he writes so unabashedly; he is not afraid of judgement; he just doesn't seem to care what people think. We try to showcase the best version of ourselves to get people to like or repsect us, but he doesn't do that. Maybe that's why I am such a big fan.

I like it because he writes how he'd talk, using hyperbole matter-of-factly.
