I feel like I've found a sister and friend in Sloane Crosley. In I Was Told There'd Be Cake, her writing is witty and funny and full of things I wish I could come up with. She's like a female mixture of David Sedaris (for awkward family stories) and Chuck Klosterman (for pop culture references). This is definitely one of the best books I've read this year.
I've put a few quotes from the book in my last few posts, mostly because I'm alone in my apartment and, as with anything really funny, there's the desire to share it with someone.
