This is my first David Sedaris book and I have to say, he has a way of throwing you into his crazy family and his life lessons. I laughed out loud several times and nearly cried a few times. It was a very touching and very telling book about the types of people and families in every day life. I highly encourage you to try it. I've already purchased another David Sedaris novel.
