Heartbreaking and lovely

If you like Jesus’ son by Denis Johnson then you’ll like this. It’s heartbreaking and beautiful. It explores depression and relationships in a very real way.

Hilarious. Heartbreaking. Amazing.

Have you listened to any of Scott McClanahan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is hands down Scott McClanahan's best work yet. Loved Crapalachia, but The Sarah Book is on another level.

Best Book Of The Year, Hands Down

Any additional comments?

Scott McClanahan is an American treasure. I read the print book too but him reading it is the only way to go.
