Sleepwalk With Me by Mike Birbiglia
I first heard Mike Birbiglia while listening to This American Life in my car and have been a fan ever since. He describes himself as a comedian, but I just think of him as a storyteller and I love a good story. Sleepwalk With Me did not disappoint. I literally laughed out loud while reading this book. Many of the stories in this book will be familiar to those who have heard Birbiglia on This American Life, The Moth or any of the other shows he’s been on. Despite being familiar with the stories I still laughed the second time around. Even when he is describing an awkward, dangerous or emotionally difficult situation, Birbiglia manages to make it funny. So if you’re in the mood for a good laugh, pick this up.
