Description

Unabridged on 3 CDs. Read by David and Amy Sedaris. A riotous collection of memoirs which explores the absurd hilarity of modern life and creates a wickedly incisive portrait of an all-too-familiar world. It takes Sedaris from his humiliating bout with obsessive behaviour in 'A Plague of Tics' to the title story, where he is finally forced to face his naked self in the company of lunatics. At this soulful and moving moment, he brushes cigarette ashes from his pubic hair and wonders what it all means. This remarkable journey into his own life follows a path of self-effacement and a lifelong search for identity leaving himself both under suspicion and over dressed.show more

I just love Sedaris's stories. They're honest, funny and uncompromising, and they read as if they're effortless to write, which is a mark of how brilliantly crafted they are -- Rebecca Front I just love Sedaris's stories.
