Finalist for the Thurber Prize for American Humor
Sleepwalk with Me is a comedic memoir, but I m only thirty-two years old, so I d hate for you to think I m wrapping it up, so to speak. But I tell some really personal stories. Stories that I considered not publishing time and time again about my childhood, about girls I made out with when I was thirteen, about my parents, and, of course, about my bouts with sleepwalking. Bring this book to bed. And sleepwalk with me.
