It’s true, you can tell my fiance that (she already knows). Sloane Crosley is an unexpected gift: a humorous intellectual, an essayist who not only plays with words, not only has a flair for the dramatic, but is also incredibly thoughtful and moving. As David Sedaris says of her, “How sure-footed and observant she is. How perfectly, relentlessly funny.” I’m 200-pages into her second book and couldn’t recommend her highly enough. Her stories range topically from horrible roommates to getting lost in Portugal to the etiquette and culture of public washrooms. She tells each of them with equal charm and wit. I’m totally crushed.
