    DescriptionDavid Sedaris's remarkable ability to uncover the hilarious absurdity teeming just below the surface of everyday life is elevated to wilder and more entertaining heights than ever in this new book of stories. Sedaris proceeds from bizarre conundrums of daily life - the etiquette of having a lozenge fall from your mouth into the lap of a fellow passenger or how to soundproof your windows with LP covers against neurotic songbirds - to the most deeply resonant human truths. Taking in the parasitic worm that once lived in his mother-in-law's leg, an encounter with a dingo and the purchase of a human skeleton, and culminating in a brilliant account of his attempt to quit smoking - in Tokyo - David Sedaris's sixth story collection is a fresh masterpiece of comic writing.

    Review quote
    There are pages in this short story collection that made me giggle so violently that my lungs hurt THE TIMES He has a lovely, sinuous way of writing, saving the gag until you've forgotten you were expecting one. SUNDAY TIMES Good stuff SUNDAY TELEGRAPH A humourist in the Woody Allen mould INDEPENDENT
