"Surreal and surprising, funny and unsettling, Carrier's ebullient work defies common sense and annihilates the commonplace." —Kirkus

“Carrier, a regular contributor to Ira Glass’s This American Life, sees the experiences of life as a series of little stories to be shared. In this slim narrative, he gathers his autobiographical essays from radio as well as longer stories that have appeared in Harper’s and Esquire, organizes them in chronological order, and envelopes the reader with his quests… Carrier writes with humor and wit while inviting his readers into his thoughts, his stories, and his imagination.” —Library Journal
