Quotes & Awards

  • “Sedaris fans will thrill to this opportunity to poke around in the writer’s personal diaries, which he has faithfully kept for four decades and used as raw material for his hilarious nonfiction as well as his performances.”

    Boston Globe

  • “Scintillating…Sedaris is a latter-day Charlie Chaplin: droll, put-upon but not innocent, and besieged by all sorts of obstreperous or menacing folks…Sedaris’s storytelling, even in diary jottings, is so consistently well-crafted and hilarious that few will care whether it’s embroidered.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Raw glimpses of the humorist’s personal life as he clambered from starving artist to household name…though the mood is usually light, the book is also a more serious look into his travails as an artist and person…A surprisingly poignant portrait of the artist as a young to middle-aged man.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Sedaris’ diaries are the wellspring for his cuttingly funny autobiographical essays, and he now presents a mesmerizing volume of deftly edited passages…Sedaris is caustically witty about his bad habits and artistic floundering…A candid, socially incisive, and sharply amusing chronicle of the evolution of an arresting comedic artist.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • A Bookpage Most Anticipated Book of 2017 Memoirs
  • Winner of an AudioFile Earphones Award
