Summary, etc.:
In David Sedaris' world, no one is safe and no cow is sacred. A manic cross between Mark Leyner, Fran Lebowitz, and the National Enquirer, Sedaris' collection of essays is a rollicking tour through the national zeitgeist: a do-it-yourself suburban dad saves money by performing home surgery; a teenage suicide tries to incite a lynch mob at her funeral; a bitter Santa abuses the elves. Barrel Fever is like a blind date with modern life and anything can happen. This first collection of David Sedaris' comic stories and essays is performed by the author and his sister Amy Sedaris.
