You should buy this book. Not only will it make you smarter and better looking, it will also make you laugh until you cry. I'm not just saying this because he thanks me in the intro, either. He is a hilarious man, and this is an epic book of hilarious stories, well-told.
Patrick has more guts than I'm ever gonna have. Probably the same is true for you -- check out just how much he has to say about unrequited love, family dysfunctionality, rectal problems, roommate issues or saltwater catfish -- chances are you'll end up thinking "damn, how does this guy manage to show his face in public after all this?"
He's a damn writer, that's how.
Check it out....
If Augusten Burroughs was an autobiographical (I, um mean, fiction) writer or if Chuck Palahniuk grew up in the south, or if "The Rooster" Sedaris wrote I think they would all be hanging out at the same bar swapping stories.
This raw, real and self-deprecating writer will take you on a journey, will make you laugh out loud, will make you think (partly make you think you should write your own memoirs... but don't it wouldn't be as funny or well written).
Kudos to the newest member of a great tradition
An unsuspected triumph for all ages!
