Each essay is accompanied by cartoons, making the reading even more enjoyable. Each tackles a topic easily digested, yet poignantly presented. It's the kind of book that will put a pause in your day, as you sit back, relax, and immerse yourself in the great storytelling.
Without hesitation, I would recommend this book. For yourself, and as a gift. Stories this perfectly crafted should be shared. Here's an example of Gulotta's eye for detail from the essay, Painfully Employed, "That summer I was hired as a baker at a doughnut shop. I knew nothing about baking, so I had to be trained by Pierre, a man from Haiti who had worked there for ten years. Standing next to Pierre as he transformed a slab of dough into hundreds of perfect doughnuts was like watching a street magician up-close."
Gulotta's essays made me laugh (out loud), cry (real tears) and call my husband over to share bits and pieces as I read. He tackles subjects as varied as cancer and commercials with the same measured humor and charm. A must read.
