A breezy read: large font n' nice spacing between lines; need Large-Print copies? BPL has them. Hilariously/frivolously/morbidly/politically/sexo-scatologically funny. Between the lines, Sedaris comes across in this oyl' o 'old age serial-memoirs as a bit of a control freak, compulsive shopper for culottes, and a hypochondriac with a pre-melanoma cyst and a larger egg-size 'something' (that he froze and intended to feed it to a snapper turtle), not to mention his leaky plumbing. Many chapters exposing his family, and worse himself; plus others 'essays' on creative swearing; fighting over how to feed/keep pets; forcing his mate of 30-yrs to admit to the number of men he slept with, and when the number passed 50, chapter ends with WHORE (who-re they?) and a final chapter on "Comey" ? Well, we all grow old and accept the inevitable...so does Sedaris.
