Ever accidentally sent a mass email to your office describing your not-safe-for-work fantasy kingdom? Or been confused about the ground rules at a cuddle party? Looking to rent an overpriced room in the Hamptons from a codependent sociopath with a checkered past (and a hot tub)? No? Well . . . huh. "Your Wildest Dreams, Within Reason" collects Mike Sacks's unique humor pieces Craigslist ads, lesser-known tantric positions, letters to famous authors, lists, jokes, and the occasional illustration into one handsome volume. Originally published in "The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Esquire, " and "McSweeney's, " among other venerable publications, Sacks' writing is original and sharp, yet broadly funny. Whether it's a groom tweeting his wedding in real time, or a publisher offering editorial suggestions for "The Diary of Anne Frank, " Sacks' work tangles contemporary social satire with his absurdist sensibilities.
