SIMPLE TIMES Crafts for Poor People

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Amy Sedaris

Humor • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Amy Sedaris’s new book will have you in stitches—and not just of the cross-stitch variety. In her genuinely hilarious look at crafts and crafty folk, Sedaris presents a rib-tickling assortment of nutty, sometimes- naughty suggestions to brighten our lives in tough economic times. In a hyper-enthusiastic performance, Sedaris tackles the materials you’ll need for crafting, offering some truly unique ideas for crafts—such as “bottle-cap castanets” and “decorative fly strips”—and some hazards faced by novice crafters—such as feather asphyxia and sawdust fires. The audiobook offers a bonus PDF file featuring recipes, how-to’s, and photos of some finished products, including “shut-in shuffle slippers” and a “milk carton skid row.” Sedaris’s wildly wacky crafts and gift of side-splitting laughter are a perfect combination for lifting those economic doldrums.
