Reading Davy Rothbart's essays is like hearing from a good buddy who lives life with more adventure (and alcohol) and feels with more emotion and who always has a story to tell. His essays range from sweet ("Bigger and Deafer", about his mom) to ridiculous ("Naked in New York") to revelatory ("Tessa") to heavy ("The Strongest Man in the World").

A break-up letter written on an airplane barf bag, longing letters sent from jail, photos of happy celebrations, lots of very talented doodles and one deflated balloon with a wish tied to it that said "I wish I won't flunk sixth grade!" The book is filled with objects sent in to the author because of his Found magazine. It's a homage to humanity. Misspelled but heartfelt declarations of love and lust, notices for unusual lost items, musicians looking for a band, angry back and forths between teenagers in class, a couple that are clearly suicide notes, and notes left on windshields of people who can't park. All the mess that humans can put on paper.… (més)
