 "Sedaris ain't the preeminent humorist of his generation by accident"
--Whitney Pastorek,
Entertainment Weekly

"Sedaris has hit upon the narrative equivalent of Pepsi, or the PlayStation, or oxygen, or the haircut: something that others in the world might actually want and find useful. . .  He's smart, he's caustic, he's mordant, and, somehow, he's . . .  well, nice."
--Bill Richardson,
Toronto Globe and Mail

"Sedaris's droll assessment of the mundane and the eccentrics who inhabit the world's crevices make him one of the greatest humorists writing today."
---Chicago Tribune

"Sedaris belongs on any list of people writing in English at the moment who are revising
our ideas about what's funny."
 ---San Francisco Chronicle
