2Lit — Mary Karr’s memoir includes some dark humor. If you can’t handle some downer material alongside the humor or don’t enjoy feel uncomfortable laughing at the untraditional, Lit may not be the book for you.

    I found David Sedaris’s personal observations of life’s unusual behaviors extremely amusing.. “Me Think Pretty” is a highly entertaining book. However, I have attended two live presentations by David Sedaris and found his talks offensive and insufferable.

      Have you read any of Sedaris’ other books? They’re also funny. Holiday on the Rocks is hilarious.

      Funny moments in deep books seem to have more meaning somehow.
