22 Oct

Some preliminary facts and datas from Wikipedia are due first :

ISBN ISBN 0-316-77772-2 (first edition, hardcover)

This book is guaranteed to make you giggle like crazy. At some of its best point, you would even shake with laughter.

David Sedaris wrote with some shameless sense-of-humor here. He freely talked about his speed-addiction, sexuality, and characteristically, even some childish hilarity like turd ( you heard me right, turd ). Based on this tone, this book is not for everyone’s fancy, though. Some will enjoy it very much for its brainlessness, allowing you to laugh at someone else’s folly without realizing that you are indulging in your own’s stark naked forbidden guilty self. While for the others, this book will risk being categorized as simply disgusting.

As for myself, I enjoyed a lot reading this with one note : I found that Sedaris’ humorous take on drugs ( methamphetamine, aka. speed, aka. shabu ) is deeply disturbing. It definitely can lead to some serious misled choices.

All in all, if you can read it with some open mind, a good read this one really is..
