In essay after essay, Sedaris proceeds bizarre conundrums of daily life-having a lozenge fall your mouth into the lap of a fellow passenger on a plane or armoring the windows with LP covers to protect the house neurotic songbirds-to the most deeply resonant human truths. Culminating in a brilliant account of his venture to Tokyo in order to quit smoking, David Sedaris's sixth essay collection is a new masterpiece of comic writing "a writer worth treasuring" (Seattle Times).
