    "This is a good book about the trials and tribulations in learning a new language. The oops moments when you think you said the right thing with polish only to find out you've said something completely different. Hiding under the table in a restaurant would be a great place!"

    "David Sedaris is a hugely funny and oddly irreverent guy in his appearances on NPR, and he has carried it thru to this book. Being an elf at Macy's is a great rip on the commercialization of American traditions. I always tell my kids that Christmas does not start until Santa's sleigh passes Macy's front doors."

    "Definitely one of the wittier plays written in the 1800s and most likely the most famous one. Reading it in book form instead of acted out is still worth the read though clearly you should ideally watch this as a play."
