I picked up I Love Everybody (and Other Atrocious Lies) by Laurie Notaro at the David Sedaris signing and read it yesterday. I've liked her previous books, especially her first, The Idiot Girls' Action-Adventure Club. In this one, Notaro's essays revolve around her work, with a few strong entries involving her family. There were quite a few pages that had me laughing out loud: her grandmother's love of Lifetime, her unwise decision to wear a white t-shirt and white bra to Disneyland, her editor troubles, etc. As always the appeal is that she most definitely does not have her shit together. But in a really funny way.
