I can't say for sure why I loved Sloane Crosley's book and did not enjoy this one at all. In many ways, they are the same book. I guess I just felt like Sedaris had no qualms about lying to my face. Every over-the-top tale in this collection, seemed so bogus and synthetic that I just could not relate. Even if I accepted his book as pure fiction, it just couldn't hold my interest for more than a few pages at a time.
