And, just for the record, we are also stocking The Best American Short Stories 2010, edited by Richard RUsso and The Best American Essays 2010, edited by Christopher Hitchens, all at the same price point.
It's the new David Sedaris, so you probably don't need to know anything else, but you can read more about it, here:

In the pages of this 500+ page tome you'll encounter: life behind the scenes at IHOP; family dramas from Raleigh, NC and Chicago, IL; adventures in New York and Paris (and even, at least for a day, Pittsburgh, PA); random interesting, unusual and funny names from the phone book; more!
