This book . . . collection . . . performance . . . is strange, funny, occasionally perverse, and even, at times, informative. Some of the strangeness comes from Mark Leyner being both narrator and co-author, and therefore getting to narrate in lurid detail his own activities at a party one hopes was fictional. More of its strangeness comes from the questions asked and the trills the two men put on the factual responses. Leyner's delivery is always clear and professional. He often sounds on the verge of laughter, and the presence of such open amusement helps carry listeners over into laughter. As a result, this is probably better on audio than in print.
