A Book in Review: Barrel Fever

Barrel Fever By: David Sedaris
Non-fiction: essays, short stories humor 196 pages
Book Count: 68

This book is mostly short, fiction stories with only a few of the humorous essays that David Sedaris is most known for. Each story stands alone and is written from many different points of view; men and women, young and old, gay and straight. The one thing that they by in large have in common is that they would be depressing if told by another writer. The essays are on line with what you would expect from the author. The main one is the story of the year that he worked as a Christmas elf at Macy's.
