I love the book. I thought it was not only laugh-my-ass-off funny, but smart. Very smart.
I read it while travelling in Thailand and left it on the bookshelf of my bungalow's restaurant for others to read. They all saw me laughing on the beach and wanted to read it.
Back in New York now, I find I cannot say (or think) 'Long Island' without adding 'please, god, nooooooo!'
(I live in Manhattan. In a small office and even smaller apartment. Where I fantasize about escape daily.)
