From "This American Life" alum David Rakoff comes a hilarious collection that single-handedly raises self-deprecation to an art form. Whether impersonating Sigmund Freud in a department store window during the holidays, climbing an icy mountain in cheap loafers, or learning primitive survival skills in the wilds of New Jersey, Rakoff clearly demonstrates how he doesn' t belong- nor does he try to. In his debut collection of essays, Rakoff uses his razor-sharp wit and snarky humor to deliver a barrage of damaging blows that, mor e often than not, land squarely on his own jaw- hilariously satirizing the writer, not the subject. Joining the wry and the heartfelt, "Fraud" offers an object lesson in not taking life, or ourselves, too seriously.
