After hearing Sedaris promote this book on Dutch radio (I didn’t know that much about him before, certainly never heard him read or tell stories), I was intrigued. It seemed to me he had my sort of humor. This book isn’t quite laugh out loud funny, but more painful stories about animals displaying very human characteristics. Pretty interesting, but not much more than that. I am trying one of his family books next, I hear those might be more to my taste.
