David Cross is one hilarious guy. But the only comic I’ve ever found palatable as a writer is Steve Martin, and Shopgirl was barely passable. Even John Hodgman was a bit tedious although I did enjoy some of his bits.
Fresh off watching the entirety of Arrested Development, I gave in to the temptation of overloading on David Cross and got his book. But put it down, go rent Arrested Development, buy Cross’ standup albums, and leave this book where it belongs– at the store.
