Annotation In this funny and outrageous memoir, humorist Mike Birbiglia shares hilarious and deeply personal stories about his youth and about his sleepwalking experiences. Birbiglia is a popular stand-up comedian who is perhaps best known for his work on the THE BOB AND TOM SHOW and the radio program THIS AMERICAN LIFE.
Editors Note Based on his sensational hit one-man show, comedian Mike Birbiglia's charming, laugh-out-loud funny memoir is a story about first love, denial, and the perils and pitfalls of being?and released in time to accompany his new show, My Girlfriend's Boyfriend . Despite growing up in seemingly normal circumstances?four kids, two parents, a middle-class home in the suburbs with summer camp and church?early on Mike Birbiglia recognized the hilarity of life. He discovered his talent for mini-golf and piggybacked on his brother's entrepreneurial genius in starting a golf-ball resale business from their backyard. He did chores for an older sister in return for pizza, while planning a career as a rapper, break dancer, and priest. At the heart of Sleepwalk With Me is Mike's absurdly funny and frustrating battle with anxiety and insomnia, which results in hallucinatory fights with Brad Pitt, midnight visits from a jackal, and a fall from a second story hotel room in Walla Walla, Washington. In the tradition of David Sedaris's Me Talk Pretty One Day, this is a laugh-out-loud, often mortifyingly funny collection of stories, from the mundane to the sublime, and they are all beautifully told. Sleepwalk With Me is a window into Birbiglia's life?and will make you wonder how normal ?normal? really is.
