Sara Barron's The Harm In Asking: My Clumsy Encounters With The Human Race is funny as hell. Seriously. There's a reason the LA Times compares her to David Sedaris.
A collection of essays, The Harm In Asking: My Clumsy Encounters With The Human Race is a look at the many, many awkward situations Barron has gotten into over the years. But Barron isn't asking for your sympathy, which is good because you'll be too busy laughing out loud at her expense. During the course of the book's 320 pages, Barron shares her experiences with living with what could be the world's worst foreign exchange family, her imaginary friends, wanting to become a lesbian, karaoke, her family's staycations, her extreme flatulence, getting high at Lilith Fair, tattoos, boyfriends and sex, and the arrested development of her musical tastes. She'll have you in pain from laughing so hard the entire way.
Except about her horrible taste in '90s music. She really needs to do something about that.
Verdict: Buy The Harm In Asking: My Clumsy Encounters With The Human Race immediately.
