Denis decides to declare his love for Beth (who scarcely knows he's alive--their only contact has been from being seated alphabetically next to each other in class) from the podium at their high school graduation. From that moment, at the very beginning, the comedy comes fast and furious, starting with the response Denis prepares to Beth, depending on whether her reaction to his oath of love is positive or negative:
POSITIVE: "Then we agree."
NEGATIVE: "It's my medication."
Some of the hundreds of great lines from the novel include:
"Denis jerked his face to the side--universal body language for 'Yes, I was staring at you'--while maintaining his casual yet defiant pose against the wall. It made him look like a male underwear model, except not."

OK, so what's missing?
1. A short preface about the movie, but fun insight from Larry Doyle about writing and movies.
2. A 2-page spread of yearbook mugshots from Dorkin that was handy in getting to know the cast of characters (I folded the page back for quick reference in my paperback)
3. Maybe 10-20 pages of comic panel art from Dorkin that fits between chapters, including a 4-page 10-year reunion bit after the end of the book.
What does it have?
1. 35 pages of biography, background, and notes.
2. Better paper.
3. The same chapter mugshots of the main character drawn by Dorkin.
What a craptastic edition this turned out to be.
That being said. This book is hilarious.
I started this on a plane and kept disturbing my seatmate by laughing out loud. The descriptions remind me a lot of David Sedaris.
It's a great gift for grads ~ but don't think of it as *just* a teen book. Anybody who has been to high school will enjoy it.
