In David Sedaris's world, no one is safe & no cow is sacred. A manic cross between Mark Leyner, Fran Lebowitz, & The National Enquirer, Sedaris's collection of essays & stories is a rollicking tour through the national Zeitgeist. With a perfect eye & a voice infused with as much empathy as wit, Sedaris writes stories & essays that target the soulful ridiculousness of our behavior. Barrel Fever is like a blind date with modern life, & anything can happen.
"Shrewd & wickedly funny... one of America's most prickly, & most delicious, young comic talents." (The Washington Post).
