How Did You Get This Number - Sloane Crosley
Sloane Crosley follows up her bestselling I Was Told There’d be Cake with an equally entertaining, somewhat darker, collection of essays. In HOW DID YOU GET THIS NUMBER (Riverhead, $15), we hear about Crosley’s stint buying stolen furniture; her roommate, a kleptomaniac with an eating disorder; and the author’s travels to Paris, Portugal, and Alaska. Witty, and as engaging as a close friend, Crosley makes even a bear attack seem hilarious, and when she turns to everyday events, they suddenly seem worthy of a story. These essays take the reader along on adventures big and small as Crosley observes the craziness that happens around her.
