NAKED

Editorial Review - Kirkus - Jane Doe

In this collection of essays, playwright and NPR commentator Sedaris tops his anarchically hilarious miscellany Barrel Fever (1994) by inventing a new genre: autobiography as fun-house mirror.

User Review  - Ewdirtgrl - Goodreads

Pretty boring. It had it's funny moments but not enough to keep my attention. I stopped reading it and moved on to something else which says a lot as I am not one to not finish a book. Usually, I HAVE to finish it just for closure's sake but I was so bored by this book that I just gave up. Read full review
