By David Sedaris (Little, Brown)

DISCLAIMER: Do not read this book in public because you’ll look insane. Not just because you’re reading a book with the weirdest title ever, but you’ll be laughing so hard people will stare at you and clear their throats passive aggressively. The master storyteller and humourist returns with a new collection that never disappoints. From beginning (a diatribe on the French health care system) to end (a rhyming poem about dogs with issues) these essays, anecdotes and short first-person monologues from varying perspectives are refreshing, politically heated and dangerously quick-witted. Sedaris leaves no (kidney) stone unturned, describing his first colonoscopy (“The Happy Place”), hilariously tragic tales from his childhood (“Attaboy”) and his obsessive love of journaling (“Day In, Day Out”). Sedaris is the king of connecting inconsequential experiences with larger philosophical questions. Read this book and then lend it to all your friends.
