[Story]

Sedaris proceeds from the 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 use LP covers to soundproof your windows 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 collection is a fresh masterpiece of comic writing.

About the Author:

David Sedaris is a Grammy Award-nominated American humorist, writer, comedian, and radio contributor. Sedaris came to prominence in 1992 when NPR broadcast his essay "SantaLand Diaries". As of 2008, his books had collectively sold 7 million copies.
