The latest book club pick from Oprah

Format: Paperback
Charles Gulotta's writing plunges the reader into his witty and curious outlook on the world. His easy style of storytelling. Careful on the details, immense on the imagery and humble to his core, Gulotta relates to the reader with a friendly, humorous tone. When I read his essays -- posts excepted from his popular blog -- I feel as if he's sharing a story directly with me. Many of the tales stay with me, circling around in my mind long after I've finished reading.

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.
