This isn't the best of David Sedaris, but it also isn't his worst by a long shot.
I enjoyed how he takes the mundane every day details and spins them in a humorous, relatable way. Being a self proclaimed writer myself, I understand how hard of a thing this is to do and Sedaris seems to have mastered this, in his newest collection.
Also, his one liners, such as:
"The only expensive thing I actually wear is a navy cashmere sweater. It cost four hundred dollars and looks like it was wrestled from the mouth of a tiger."
really made me laugh to the point of shooting liquids from my nostrils, which is a painful thing to do, by the way.
The pieces in the collection that really captivated and held my interest are:
1. Buddy, Can You Spare A Tie (see the section entitled 'With A Pal Like This Who Needs Enemies')
2. In The Waiting Room
3. Momento Mori
