Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim
I love how well he handles the topic of his fame and fortune, he seems to take it in stride. I like how people who become famous later in life seem to be a bit more fully baked than those that were shoved out into the limelight at an early age.
This novel focuses on his family when they're older and most of them get an essay each. I especially loved the one about his brother, it was about him becoming the first one in the family to have a child and how fatherhood changed and didn't change him.
This book seemed a little darker than the other books, but still it was very enjoyable. I didn't laugh out loud as much as I did reading the other books, If you want to see some of the better quotes you can look here.
