I really don't understand where this book is trying to go, after 40 minutes I gave up due to just how tedious it was. The general theme seemed to be his own sexual perversion and his disappointment with life.
Few authors choose to narrate their own work, and this is a great example of why most authors shouldn't (there are some books that are great exceptions though!). The narration is droning, sombre, and full of depression. I would have given the book more time to win me over, had it not been for the terrible narration.

From the publisher's summary: "Jonathan Ames has drawn comparisons across the literary spectrum, from David Sedaris to F. Scott Fitzgerald to Woody Allen to P.G. Wodehouse, and his books, as well as his abilities as a performer, have made him a favorite on The Late Show with David Letterman".
What a con job. I have never read anything in Fitzgerald, Wodehouse or Allen about detailed bowel movements and smells or wieners. And as for his "performance"...the author gives no life to his characters...there is no inflection in his reading. It's awful to listen to him. After a 1/2 hour of listening to this grossness, I deleted it from my ipod.

I am far from a prude, but after listening to the first two essays, I turned it off - it felt to me like a school child saying naughty words just to get a reaction. Skip this one for sure.
