This book is frickin' insane and addictive! Amy Sedaris rocks!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence (Hardcover)
I have been enjoying Amy Sedaris's freaky-weird acting for years, so I had to snatch up this book the second I heard it was out. And, man oh man, I have been laughing for days. This is one addictive book, like a paper drug. I woke up this morning, and instead of thinking about my husband or cats or breakfast or my job, I imagined Amy Sedaris trying on pantyhose, and I thought "No Squirrels." (You'll understand after you read the book.) Then I wondered how on earth I would achieve that baked Alaska featured in her book.
This lady works comedic magic with this book. I have never, ever, ever read or seen anything like this strange book.
Yes, there is a plethora of valuable tips and recipes for entertaining, but the way Amy presents the info is nothing short of comic genius. The pictures are all gold. And her writing is rickety and charming. And wait till you find the secret poster! You will buy a locker just so you can hang it up!
Mark my word, this book will be *the* gift to give this holiday season. It is destined to make Amy Sedaris a household name. Plus, it is extremely useful and entertaining.

It's a great book, I just wish more people knew about it!

It's even on both the Wall Street Journal and Publishers' Weekly best-sellers lists this week! (Which is almost as good as the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval!)

So break out the stamps and the pink toilet paper, because this girl is going to par-TAY tonight!

What is great about this book is that it comes with a free nit comb.

My copy didn't come with a free nit comb. :(

My free nit comb was missing, too. Guess someone needed it more than I did.
