Reviews & Summaries
The two I loved were SantaLand Diaries and Dinah, the Christmas Whore. They were written as if from the author's own personal experience. (I don't know if they actually were or not.) But I found them funny, real, and tremendously engaging.
The other four were completely outrageous and over-the-top. They felt like experiments in pushing the envelope to see how far the author could go to offend or disgust his audience in the hopes of still getting a laugh. And that kind of humor isn't funny to me... it's offensive and disgusting.
There may be some who like his style of humor, but I'm not one of them.
My one criticism is the author's use of the word "retarded" and his negative portrayal of people with cognitive disabilities.
David's sister Amy Sedaris has starred in numerous funny movies and shows including "Strangers with Candy," which is also available at the Ann Arbor District Library.
