    I m normally a huge Sedaris fan but I had a tough time getting through this one It s a collection of diary entries, the majority of them being very short, about three or four sentences, often covering the same topics again and again As such, the first 2 3 of the book drags and I kept putting it down and coming back to it days later It closes strong, with the entries becoming longer and the writing becoming engaging and humorous towards the end I don t regret reading it but I do wish I d just waited and checked it out of the library instead of forking over the cash.

    David has become the PG Woodhouse of his era Unfortunately, this includes publishing SOME reruns Great writing as always and some tales are new But you will be frustrated when you recognize you read that story before I LOVE David but he needs to get out .

    If you ve read all of David Sedaris books, attended one or of of his performances, followed him on NPR or have read his magazine articles, you ll enjoy this book I loved looking back on his younger years and early observations and especially loved seeing his list of dreams and goals, and how many of them came to fruition He also gave us a deeper view into his mom s alcohol addiction and his sister Tiffany s mental illness I d recommend this specifically to his fans and followers and look forward to reading his next 15 years of diaries I rated it 5 stars because I couldn t put it down and laughed a lot in the middle of the night He just never disappoints.

    I had trouble putting the Diaries down once I started reading And what made that feel odd was that there was no plot or story line I just couldn t wait to see what might happen next, where the author might go, and who he might meet up with along the way Then, upon reaching the end, I wanted Thank you Mr Sedaris for sharing your wit, humor and keen observations.

    Here s the thing This is not a book you sit down and start with of his work In fact, he even states in his intro that he doesn t expect people to pick this up and read it cover to cover I chose to because I am seeing him on his tour and wanted to be prepared and have ready most of his books and love him All of his previous work is funny and entertaining but this does take a darker dive into his life You see a rawer side him but I do feel his wit shines through.If you are an avid David fan, read this after reading some of his other books I was able to tie some of his diary entries his short stories Like the time his brother almost drowned and he talked about in the story about his brothers weddinh in When You are Engulfed in Flames It was pretty cool to see the diary entry where he talked about he and his brother swimming and almost drowning.But like I said go into this later Don t let this be your first book of his.I found it cool to see the start of his stories That he wrote in his diaries and then expanded in his essays in his books.
