We may not brush our hair, change out of our pajamas, or sit down at the dining table, but we always make time to read.

Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk
I read this book months ago, but have been so delinquent in keeping track of things that I'm just getting to review it now...which means that I have nearly forgotten what it was all about. But, this collections reads like a demented Aesop's fables (which I loved as a kid). Each story features anthropomorphised animals taking on the traits of our most annoying humans. In typical Sedaris fashion, they are cynical and observant, wildly hilarious, and irritating. I can see reading each story here and there - while waiting in line for lunch or for the bus. They aren't particularly insightful, but if you like Sedaris, they will probably bring you a little chuckle.
