A New York Times BestsellerDaniel Pecan Cambridge, 30, 35, 38, or 27, depending on how he feels that day, is a young man whose life is rich and full, provided he never leaves his Santa Monica apartment. After all, outside there are 8-inch-high curbs and there's always the horrible chance he might see a gas station attendant wearing a blue hat. So, except for the occasional trip to the Rite Aid to admire the California girl Zandy and to buy earplugs because they're on sale, he stays home a lot. And a good thing too, or he would have never been falsely implicated in a murder, never almost seduced Philipa, never done the impossible task of jogging around the block with Brian, never ironed his pillows, and he might never have won the Most Average American essay contest.

I am not a fan of acronyms but this book, OMG LOL! Not many books can make me laugh out loud but this book did just that. I would suggest you don't read this in public as you may get odd looks from complete strangers.

Steve Martin can make even mental illness funny.

If you require further proof that Steve Martin (yes, that Steve Martin) is a genius, read this little gem of a novel. I've read it multiple times, and it still makes me laugh and cry. It has a lot of heart.

Easy to read, sweet and charming and funny and moving. I just love Steve Martin's writing. Very enjoyable book - quite as entertaining as Shopgirl but in a different way. Recommended for anyone looking for quick quirky happiness.

This is a wonderful, though unusual, book. It is extremely well written and engaging. I highly recommend it.
