I love this book and it isn't just because I share the same name! As a fun loving dog I enjoy a good David Sedaris book. This book is not what I expected it to be. It is not like his other books, though while his others are funny while touching upon very serious cultural issues, this one is a bit darker. Going through his midlife crisis and experiencing grief from losing his sister to suicide he still manages to be an amazing storyteller and you still feel entertained with his witty retorts and observations. Only he can make you laugh and cry at the same time. I give this book 5 barks.
