The humorist's eye for the peculiar is as sharp as ever
Sedaris is a singularly talented humorist who lands acerbic zingers with the calculating precision of a kamikaze pilot... Throughout the colorful, caustic yarns that fill his best-selling essay and story collections, he's maintained league-of-his-own status by staying light on his feet: Just when you're expecting a wry jab, he clocks you with a poignant gut punch.
Grumpy, bitchy, sympathetic, sad and welcoming all at once
A rich trove for hardcore Sedaris fans
The second volume of the American humorist's diaries is full of his trademark wit
Like Sedaris's exquisitely crafted personal essays, his diary entries explore odd hairstyles, blandly aggressive post office interactions, airport bureaucracy and the non sequiturs of small talk: micro-topics he elevates to their own pedestals of meaning and humor.
Uproarious... a must for Sedaris fans.
Sedaris' evolution will be fascinating to longtime fans; they'll love these insights into his life.
