I read great reviews of this book, and recently bought it for my friend for Christmas. You should have a crazy, wacky sense of humor in order to enjoy this book. If you haven't heard any Amy Sedaris humor, maybe you've heard some of her brother David Sedaris' stuff? Well, anyway, you might want to be familiar with this particular family's brand of humor before you buy it. But I think it's hilarious. Think of it as a white-trash entertainment guide.
There are recipes. You might never use them. That's not the point. Where else can you find last minute decorative crafts to make with panty hose? Check this book out if you need a book gift for a friend with a quirky sense of humor. I find it hilarious.
