The list author says: "You know who you are. Most of the craft books out there aren't for you, with their abundance of cutesy foo-foo soft-focus florals and fuzziness. You are not an Amanda, a Muffy or a Brittany, but you have been occasionally mistaken for Morticia. You do have more black in your closet than any other color. For the same amount of money, you'd go with a tattoo over a designer purse. You don't really care what people think. You would have gone to prom with your best gay pal over some date-raping candidate from the football team -- if you went at all. You think of each year in terms of the band you were listening to at the time. Maybe you were bullied/tormented by that miserable bleachy blonde cheerleader-type, whom you accidentally saw while shopping one day, so you quietly followed her into the dressing room where you head-butted her so hard in the implants that she passed out from the pain, so you could give her wallet to those eleven year-olds at the arcade to do with as they chose... But I digress. There were many worthy tomes that almost made the cut, but here are those sarcastic, sinister, edgy books I would actually (and do) own, painstakingly ferreted out over the years."
"If you leave these precious creations alone in a room with ordinary fluffy plushies, the plushies will go insane. You will then find them in the morning, missing tiny stuffed limbs and growing fangs."
"DO NOT be alarmed by the bright yellow and blue book cover. Shhhh, it's okay. She may not be one of us, but she's sympathetic. And she has some really solid ideas. Look, you don't have to have drinks with her, just hear what she has to say."
"The other talented and deeply disturbing member of the Sedaris clan, you will love this book. It is the cookbook/entertaining manual that Barbara Billingsley could have written while on acid and dating Tim Burton. Maybe."
"There's creation, and then there's creation. I only point this out, because you don't want to live in a world where the next generation is entirely populated by the progeny of Amanda, Muffy and Brittany. That would be an abomination."
